Mari Evans’ “Ethos and Creativity” Three Decades Later: Art and Race in Indianapolis
Learn what it means to be an African American artist in Indianapolis and how that experience has changed-and not changed-over the past 30 years.
Event Details

Join panelists Phyllis Boyd, David Hoppe, Andrea Matejka, Carl Pope and LaShawnda Crowe Storm as they discuss art and race in Indianapolis. Their conversation will take its start from the 1989 essay “Ethos and Creativity: The Impulse as Malleable” by Mari Evans, which combines autobiography, history and conceptual analysis to relate local conditions to a broader understanding of the significance of artistic creation. The panelists will consider the essay’s continuing relevance to art, justice and community.
