Do you like this story?
Well, I'm sure that a majority of the artists and arts organizaitons in Indy have been hit hard by the present economic downturn. I have been searching for a employment now for nearly 5 months and have had to move out of my art studio due to a lack of finance. This I am sure is no different from a lot of our readers, in some respects or another. Well, now we can see that it has impacted the IMA as well. Below is the latest press release, explaining their current situation and how they plan to confront the situation while still keeping the museums mission at the forefront. While possibly the most noticeable change being the postponement of the grand opening of the Virginia Fairbanks Art and Nature Park (now slated to open in Spring 2010), let us hope that the economy makes a fairly swift come back so that these changes will last as short as possible. And I tip my hat to the senior staff for their donations to help offset the costs of keeping the museum operating.
