‘Why Arts?’ event video available online

For those who missed the “Why Arts? Why Indy?” panel discussion that took place Dec. 10 on campus, a lightly edited video of the evening is now posted for online viewing, thanks to the folks at WFYI Productions.

Organized by Dr. Kathleen Hacker, chair of UIndy’s Department of Music, the event featured Michael Kaiser, president of the Kennedy Center for the Arts, discussing challenges facing arts organizations with moderator Dennis Ryerson and local panelists and co-hosts David Hochoy of Dance Kaleidoscope; Steven Stolen of Indiana Repertory Theatre; Beth Perdue Outland of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra; Glen Kwok of the International Violin Competition of Indianapolis; and Jim Walker of Big Car.
