INDIANA---Enjoy a lively lineup of African-American musicians, storytellers, dancers and visual artists, and get to know the fresh faces of Indy’s art scene at Art & Soul 2017. Ernest Disney-Britton, director of grant services and education partnerships with the Arts Council of Indianapolis, says this year’s celebration was partially inspired by the legacy of President Barack Obama. Sportscaster Michael Grady will serve as emcee for the kickoff celebration on Saturday, Jan. 28. The two-hour event will include a procession of African drumming by Griot Drum Ensemble and a jazz tribute to President Obama. [link]
