In the meantime, for a more extensive Weekend listing, check out the IDADA First Friday map.

MiCo returns to the Murphy on May 2 The Midwest Museum of Contemporary Art (MiCo) is pleased to present its latest exhibition, The Life of Brian, a selection of works by four diverse and talented artists currently based in Indianapolis. Curated by Scott Grow and Jeremy Efroymson, this exhibition proposes to question whether with the ever growing globalization of art in the world today, if regionalism still exists in Indiana. The Life of Brian juxtaposes the works of local artists Brian McCutcheon, Brian Myers, Brian Presnell and Brian Priest, in search of common ground which may help to define what contemporary regionalism in Indiana may be. The exhibition consists of photography, sculpture, painting, video and an audio installation. These artists will take over MiCo's temporary showroom in the Murphy Arts Center at 1043 Virginia Ave, Suite 4, in Fountain Square from May 2nd to 24th. Open to the public: Fridays 5pm-7pm and Saturdays 1pm-4pm or by appointment. The Life of Brian is made possible by the Efroymson Fund, a CICF fund, with media support provided by Big Car Gallery.
