The candidates for lieutenant governor will meet for a joint forum about the arts in Indiana on Sept. 14 in Columbus.

The event - sponsored by the Indiana Arts Commission and the Indiana Coalition for the Arts - will include 20-minute presentations from Rep. Sue Ellspermann, the Republican running with gubernatorial hopeful Mike Pence, and from Sen. Vi Simpson, the Democrat running with John Gregg.
