Re: “Indianapolis Museum of Art to charge general admission fee

Yeah, $18 is steep, BAM they hit you with $18. That is dinner and drinks
for many folks. Some of the exhibits are getting stale and old. They had
the Ai Wei Wei exhibit which was good, but for general art show they get,
too steep. I am thinking of all the underprivileged kids who for the first
time visited an art museum. For Free, guess they will have to play in a park.

Re: “Indianapolis Museum of Art to charge general admission fee

Disappointing, to put it nicely. Disgraceful if I'm being honest.
Au revoir established art and culture for all.

Re: “Indianapolis Museum of Art to charge general admission fee

If Indianapolis would try a little harder to have some real culture instead of only glorifying sports (to the cost of taxpayers) this wouldn't happen. There could be a subsidy to cover admission costs to the general public and admission could remain free. This is what happens when you live in a "sports capital" which, over time, incrementally excludes any type of government funding for every other type of entertainment or culture. We are reaping what we sow as a culture.

Re: “Indianapolis Museum of Art to charge general admission fee

While I agree that there should be a nominal fee, I think $18 and $10 are a little steep. A couple and 2 children are going to pay $56 for a trip to the art museum? That is almost a day's bring home pay for many people. As usual, the working poor are excluded. Good luck with that IMA.

Re: “Hotel Rwanda's Paul Rusesabagina to open Madame Walker 2014-15 season

I myself lived out the terrible 100 days of the Genocide against Tutsi from within the walls of the Hotel Mille Collines, aka the “Hotel Rwanda”.
Mr. Rusesabagina did not save my life. Mr. Rusesabagina saved less lives than anyone who was in the hotel. If anything, Mr. Rusesabagina imperiled our lives and exploited our lives, and continues to do so today. We paid him for foods and drinks and we paid him for rooms. You are honoring and giving a platform to a fictional character who now denies the genocide against Tutsi which made him famous.

Re: “Hotel Rwanda's Paul Rusesabagina to open Madame Walker 2014-15 season

It's a shame that a theater which was named after Madame C.J. Walker, a woman whose philanthropy benefited social justice causes, will open the 2014-2015 season with a presentation by Paul Rusesabagina, a man who has waged a campaign to deny the very genocide Hollywood used to make him famous. Did Dr. Spears, the Theater's CEO, do the minimum research to know the man behind the mask? But, if she is of good will and does not want to kill a second time our loved ones whose lives the genocide claimed, it is not too late to do the research and to disinvite him.

Re: “Rare photo exhibition at Indiana Black Expo

The "dead" black soldier next to the dead Confederate is not a soldier and he is NOT dead. He is an assistant to the photographer that took the image. In short, this is a POSED shot, as far as the assistant is concerned.

Re: “IRT co-founder Ben Cameron at the IMA

While I appreciate the lovely article by Rita, she gives me far too much credit! IRT was founded by Greg Poggi, Ed Stern and Ben Mordecai. I joined the organization in its 11th year (I think) and was ultimately the Associate Artistic Director, but never the founder!
