Reliving Exciting Events

The IMA always has many interesting events on the calendar. From films to performances, there is always something (or several things) coming up which I personally want to make time to see. Throughout the year, our Public Programs department is busy lining up events to help Indianapolis be culturally adventurous (the Toby’s tag line), and New Media is often ready to capture an event so more people can experience it later on our Website and on ArtBabble.

Here are three IMA events we have recently posted video of, all of which I saw in person. The funny thing is, in each case I noticed or appreciated something new while watching the video that I had missed during the event.

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright joined us recently for the opening of the exhibition Read My Pins: The Madeleine Albright Collection. I was very excited to film her earlier in the day- she is an amazing person and a wonderful role model for women of all ages.

Even though I was live-tweeting the Project IMA: Fashion Unbound Fashion Show, I  saw outfits for the first time when watching this video- they go by so quickly I missed them during the live events! I also loved seeing the materials used by each designer. This show was so much fun!

Over the summer, the IMA celebrated the opening of 100 Acres: The Virginia B. Fairbanks Art & Nature Park with a special performance by Shara Worden, Dayna Kurtz and Liz Janes. This commissioned piece matched the mood of the evening very well- the weather was perfect and the celebration fitting for such a unique and magical setting.
