Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

Nov. 10: Skirting the Issue -- Stories of Indiana’s Historical Women Artists


Presentation by Judith Vale Newton and Carol Ann Weiss, authors of Skirting the Issue -- Stories of Indiana’s Historical Women Artists, followed by a panel discussion (including a discussion of Indiana Jewish women artists whose work is on display in the JCC's Arts Lobby)

When: Thursday 10 November, 2:30-4:00 PM

Where: Arthur M. Glick Jewish Community Center, 6701 Hoover Road, Indianapolis

According to the ethos of the late 1800s and early 1900s, a woman’s natural destiny was to be a wife, mother, and guardian of the virtues of hearth and home. Some women wanted more, however, and despite cultural expectations chose to explore their creativity and seek training in art. While this first-of-a-kind book focuses on Indiana women specifically, its stories offer excellent insights into the culture and values of the greater Midwest—and the nation at large—in the decades before and after the turn of the twentieth century. Skirting the Issue includes more than two hundred images, including full-color reproductions of artworks and black-and-white photographs of the artists themselves.
