If you find yourself at the beginning of the weekend, scrolling online and looking to enjoy some live music, visit a cool exhibit at a museum, try a new restaurant, go out with the family or simply relax with a self-care day, the Indianapolis Recorder has you covered. We’ve put together an extensive list of some of the things going on in and around Indianapolis this weekend in the arts.
As excited as we are about presenting this list to you, we know we couldn’t get everything. If there’s something going on that we and other Hoosiers should know about, feel free to let us know so we can include it next week!
