Record Store Day 2014
Saturday, April 19, 2014 

Record Store Day is the start of Spring for me. The streets will be teeming with neighbors that you haven’t seen since you were all shoveling out your driveways in January.

This is the first RSD for Indy CD under new ownership and boy do they have some fun planned. Annie Skinner, Andy Skinner, and Eric Davis purchased the store from founder and owner Rick Ziegler in January. 

They will carry almost all of the RSD special releases, feature a beefed-up used vinyl section, introduce new products, such as turntables from Rega, needles and cartridges from Grado, and headphones from LSTN.

Installation Nation
Indianapolis Art Center
820 E. 67th Street
Friday April 25 6-10pm
Saturday April 26 12-4pm
free, all-ages

Primary Colours is an Indianapolis based non-profit devoted to integrating visual artists and the community to create and sustain a thriving environment for the arts. They roll all of that together in their annual Installation Nation event.
This year, Primary Colours is leaving behind the shipping containers from past shows and  embracing the artistic opportunities and challenges of creating installations directly in the park. Eleven artists and art groups groups will transform ArtsPark into an outdoor gallery. This is an excellent opportunity to see artists testing the limits of temporary outdoor installation art and a very unique offering in Indianapolis’ annual art calendar.

Each artist’s work presents a different vision of installation art. There will be interactive pieces, pieces in the trees, on the grounds, on the terrace, and hung on sheets. The nature of the layout will allow the viewer to experience pieces individually as well as interacting with each other.

You will have a chance to meet the artists and celebrate the arts in Indianapolis. Attendees will be able to participate in the construction of a collaborative installation. There will be live music from 8:00 - 10:00 PM on Friday by Danny Thompson.  Sun King beer will be available along with food.

Participating artists are Bridgit Stoffer (Indianapolis), Hector Del Campo (Avon), Chandler Ahrens and Aaron Sprecher (Belleville, IL), Leah Schreiber Johnson (Milwaukee, WI), Andrew Ball  (Indianapolis), Heather Brammeier  (Peoria, IL), Linda Vanderkolk  (West Lafayette), Brad MCCombs (Cincinnati, OH), Justin Trapp and Cassie Kobets (Greenwood), Jeff Martin ( Indianapolis), and Indianapolis Art Center Teen Advisory Council with Devin Balara (Indianapolis/Bloomington).
