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.

Visit IndyBuzz's sister site, http://www.provocate.org/, which provides a context for the clusters of the events discussed in IndyBuzz.

Nov. 19: "Time and Timeless-ness: A Conversation with Stewart Brand and Witold Rybczynski"




A discussion with two of the world's leading thinkers about space, place, and community: Designer and philosopher Stewart Brand (How Buildings Learn) and Witold Rybczynski (The Perfect House), moderated by local legend architect Evans Woollen

When: Saturday 19 November, 2:00-3:00 PM

Where: Indianapolis Museum of Art, DeBoest Lecture Hall, 4000 N Michigan Rd.

A building, a tool, and a piece of furniture: each embodies an idea about utility or beauty, a belief about what people should want or need. This dialogue is about the mobility of ideas and theories of design over time and across cultures. How do styles and technologies acquire staying power for the future—or simply expire? This program is inspired by the IMA’s fall exhibition, International Arts & Crafts, and made possible by the Evans Woollen Fund.
