Weekend Preview

Saturday, June 30th
“TRIAGE: Earth, Justice, Peace”
an Activist Arts Demonstration in Fountain Square, Indianapolis, followed by a benefit concert at Radio Radio.

Fountain Square will host TRIAGE, an all-ages free indoor/outdoor exhibition of public art in a variety of media – two and three dimensional work, installation, dance, performance art, film, spoken word, and music – all relating to the interconnected themes of earth, justice and peace. All of the gravest issues our society and environment face can be related to this triad of subjects, and this event will bring together a diverse number of very skilled artists. “This is art with a purpose,” says T.J. Reynolds, one of the event organizers. “Artists are working together to raise awareness and educate the public on issues that should be kept in the forefront of our minds and work.” Reynolds continues, “To make true changes in their lives, people must feel inspired. By artistically expressing one’s message, it has a better chance of affecting the audience in a meaningful way.” Over 80 artists, writers and performers will converge on Fountain Square to deliver their creative and urgent messages on Saturday, June 30, in this free event taking place from 10 am until 6pm. Artists will be spread throughout the Fountain Square area, and a main stage will feature musical acts throughout the day, along with an open drum circle at 3pm and an open mic at 4pm. (It will be moved to the Wheeler Arts building in case of rain.) Then later that evening, Radio Radio will host a benefit concert for the Hoosier Environmental Council. The evening concert will start at 9pm, and entry is $5. For more information: Email: Phone: 317.332.1960

Where is the real debate about Herron?

Seems to me that everyone is upset with the leadership of the dean.

What is going on over there?
