Tick, tick, tick…. Time to go!

Hello IMA friends!

So the time has come to make the long journey to Rome and then Venice. I am so anxious to hear from the students about their trip! Alberto and I made a really fun video to start off the adventure. The noise you hear in the background is our lovely fountain that sits right in front of the Nourish Cafe’ (inside the IMA). During the better spring weather (minus the rain and wind), people can be found sitting outside enjoying the sun and eating meals prepared by our great Chef – with ingredients supplied by local farmers.

Check out Alberto’s video blog and look for more questions from him on Our Voices.

For the Indy (Hoosier) crew, I hope this short video offers you a little bit of home while you are away.

I said I was going to have an Italian dinner in honor of your trip and guess what– I made spaghetti for dinner last night. Sorry, no picture of it. It smelled and looked so good I inhaled my delightful meal before I could photograph it.

Imagine…..fresh sauce made with Roma tomato, garlic, sliced onion, Italian sausage and a little mozzarella and Parmesan to top it off. Hopefully this description will inspire you to take the time to savor every bite of your first meal there and notice any differences between Italian food in Italy and our restaurants in the United States or Puerto Rico. Enjoy your first meal and explorations in Rome!

Buona fortuna e A presto (Good luck and see you soon!) please correct my Italian if necessary.


About Carol

Location: Indianapolis, Indiana, United States
Works In: Audience Engagement at the Indianapolis Museum of Art
Interests: Painting, reading and jewelry making
My favorite kind of movies: Comedy, documentary films, "sappy" love stories and romantic films and some action films. Really good horror films tend to make my heart race so I often avoid them.
Favorite Movies: "The Art of the Steal," "You've Got Mail," "Poltergeist" (This movie really was scary when it first came out - yes, really!)
Favorite Music: Definitely eclectic taste in music - "old school" music (please don't ask how old), Jazz, R & B, some Hip Hop and I also like Classical music (as in Bach and Mozart).
Favorite Food: My taste in food varies, I love both boiled and fried plantain because they provide the body with a lot of iron, curried chicken, hand-made pizza (and many other Italian dishes). Eat fruit and veggies whenever I feel the need and enjoy Indian and Ethiopian food from time to time.
What I hope to learn from this project: I hope to experience Italy and the Biennale remotely! It will be great fun to work with our Indy student host Alberto as we try to envision the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of this historical place. Can't wait to get the first message from our teams from Ponce and Indy – Ready, set, ... Wait for it…..!
