Country,Swing
Asleep at the Wheel
The self-described "Kings of Texas Swing" started out in 1969 with Ray Benson and Lucky Oceans (Reuben Gosfield) in Paw Paw, WV as a tribute to Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys. The group has opened for such artists as Alice Cooper and Hot Tuna. But since 1970, they have gone on to earn multiple Grammy Awards and record over 20 studio albums. Of their many singles on the Billboard Country charts, their highest-charting hit and perhaps most beloved tune is 'The Letter That Johnny Walker Read.' Their latest album, "Still King" was released in March.

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. While visiting the campus, walk to the Virginia B. Fairbanks Art & Nature Park, where you can see real-life birds up-close.

Rock
Brick + Mortar
"We are not for the faint of heart. Our brash, gritty, whip-smart sound foregoes guitar in favor of bass, drums, and electronic samples. At our shows, the audience is part of the band. That's what makes playing each show uniquely exciting and inspiring. We will give you 100 percent every time because we truly love what we do. Hopefully, you give us 100 percent back." From the band's Facebook page.

Bruno Mars
Peter Hernandez, better known by his stage name Bruno Mars, is a singer-songwriter and music producer. He co-wrote and lent his vocals for such hits as B.o.B.'s "Nothing On You" and Travie McCoy's "Billionaire" and his songwriting prowess was further evidenced by the popularity of other hits like Cee-Lo Green's foul-mouthed but hook-laden "F**k You." Now, he's a bonafide (and Grammy-winning) star himself, with two hit albums and over 50 million singles sold worldwide, including such hits as "Grenade," "Just the Way You Are," "Locked Out of Heaven" and more. The 24K Magic World Tour marks Mars' first full-length tour since 2013's hugely successful Moonshine Jungle World Tour, an international blockbuster that sold 2 million tickets worldwide across 155 sold-out dates.

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.
