Audubon: Drawn to Nature
"Audubon: Drawn to Nature" is an exhibition featuring the lifelike drawings of John James Audubon. From stern owls to playful parakeets, these beautiful drawings feature birds of North America carefully studied and documented by Audubon, a leader in ornithology and conservation. Along with the artwork and accompanying descriptions of the bird’s habitat and characteristics, experience an immersive gallery where Audubon’s birds will come to life, giving the feeling of being outdoors in a forest. Learn about habitat conservation and test your wingspan against some of nature’s biggest birds. See one of the few remaining printing plates made for the original printing of Audubon’s "The Birds of America" book, lent to the IMA by the Smithsonian Museum of American History.

Running,For the Family
Bubble Run
If you’ve done a traditional 5K, you know they can be a bit lackluster. But the Bubble Run is the running equivalent to the whimsical bubble room in Willy Wonka's factory. Clad in white T-shirts, adults, kids and strollers run, walk, dance and play across 3 miles of bubbly fun. Waves start every 3-5 minutes. Then, at each kilometer, participants will run through the Foam Bogs, where there's is enough colored foam to cover you from head to toe. Bubbleteers and charity partners will also be there to help make sure you get your share of the frothy goodness. Each of the four Foam Bogs are represented by different colored foam. So what if you should accidentally “taste the whimsy?” They don’t taste as great as they are fun, but not to worry. The foam is 100% safe. And the run is non-competitive.

Blues,Rock
Buddy Guy
Chicago blues legend and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Buddy Guy, now in his early 80s, has established himself as one of the music world's premiere guitar players, having influenced musicians since the late '50s and paved the way for many blues players to follow in his footsteps. The Louisiana-born Guy started off with a makeshift guitar, which was made from a two-string contraption attached to a piece of wood and secured with his mother's hairpins. He later moved to Chicago and got the recognition he needed from Muddy Waters, joining his band and becoming a house guitarist at Chess Records. The rest, as they say, is history. A major influence on rock titans like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and Stevie Ray Vaughan, a pioneer of Chicago's fabled West Side sound, and a living link to the city's halcyon days of electric blues, Guy has received seven Grammy Awards, a 2015 Lifetime Achievement Grammy, 34 Blues Music Awards (the most any artist has received), the Billboard Magazine Century Award for distinguished artistic achievement, a Kennedy Center Honor, and the Presidential National Medal of Arts. Rolling Stone magazine ranked him No. 23 in its "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time." He released his latest studio album, "Born to Play Guitar," in July 2015; it which debuted at No 1 on Billboard's Top Blues Albums chart.

Chemistry of Color
Through the ages, discoveries in chemistry have expanded the artist’s palette with new colorants, while the demands of fashion and the arts have pushed scientists to search for new ways to create color. "Chemistry of Color" charts the relationship between chemistry and art over a period of more than 4,500 years by exploring a selection of natural and synthetic colorants used to create pigments and dyes that color our world. "Chemistry of Color" is one of a series of three IMA exhibitions called CSI (Conservation Science Indianapolis) that focuses on how science and scientific detective work help inform the study of art.
