The next business meeting of the Indiana Arts Commission (IAC) will be held Friday, June 21, 2013. The quarterly meeting will be held at 9:00 a.m. (EDT) at Indiana Government Center South, Conference Room 4, 302 W. Washington St., Indianapolis.
Among items for review and action by the Commission will be the proposed budget for the next fiscal year; recommendations for Individual Artist Program, organization, and project grant awards, and nominations for officers for the next fiscal year.
Commissioners will also receive a project update from Governor's Arts Awards artist William Galloway.
All meetings of the Commission are open to the public.
The Indiana Arts Commission became an agency of Indiana state government in the summer of 1969. When it did, Bobbie Garver became one of its first employees.
Since that time, the IAC has gone from awarding 42 grants in 1969 to more than 300 this year, and there have been very few IAC programs and services that Bobbie has not had some part in.
At the end of this month, Bobbie will retire after 44 years of service to the arts and citizens of our state. If you have a favorite Bobbie memory, we invite you to share it with us on our Facebook page. Join us in wishing Bobbie all the best, and thanking her for a lifetime commitment to the arts of Indiana.
