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.

Sept. 25: Opening of "25 above water"

This is the first showing of "25 Above Water," a collection of limited edition posters by artists from around the country to provide relief for the victims of Hurricaines Katrina and Rita

When: Opening Reception: Monday, September 25, 6 - 9 pm; exhibit shows September 25 - 30

Where: Herron School of Art and Design, Marsh Special Projects Gallery 735 West New York Street, Indianapolis

In the days following hurricanes Katrina and Rita a group of fellow artists united to aid hurricane relief efforts by creating "25 Above Water," a collection of limited edition posters by artists from New York City, Rhode Island, Cleveland, Chicago, Kansas City, Lincoln, Minneapolis, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, and Indianapolis. This September the 25 Above Water art collection, by artists/designers from throughout the United States, will be on display for the first time ever in the new Herron School of Art and Design building in downtown Indianapolis.

Opening reception is September 25, 2006 from 6 pm - 9 pm. Among the 25 Above Water participating artists planning to attend the opening are Eric Kass, Michael Norman Olson, Jonathan McGlothin, and 2006 AIGA Medalist Rick Valicenti of 3st. The AIGA Medal is the highest honor, awarded by the AIGA - The Professional Association for Design, in the field of graphic design to designers for their exceptional achievements in graphic design and visual communication. A lecture and presentation by Rick Valicenti (sponsored by the Herron School of Art and Design, Dept. of Visual Communication) is tentatively scheduled for Sept. 25 right before the opening reception.

"25 Above Water" is an exhibition well worth attending, and has received national and international attention. Organized and curated by Indianapolis artist and graphic designer Sam Vázquez, "25 Above Water" is an event that Provocate (successor to IndyBuzz) will examine at greater length, along with Vázquez's "Department of World Service."
