Local Classical Featured Playlist – 11/14/22 – 11/27/22
In this week’s playlist, we highlight the wonderful Kurt Vonnegut Museum and Library (KVML) with the help of the founder and CEO, Julia Whitehead. The Kurt Vonnegut Museum and Library champions the literary, artistic, and cultural contributions of the late writer, artist, teacher, and Indianapolis native Kurt Vonnegut. The library and museum serve as a cultural and educational resource unique to the nation. KVML houses artifacts, art, a museum store, and books related to Vonnegut. When you visit KVML, you’ll be able to see Vonnegut’s typewriter, Purple Heart, reading glasses, artwork, and other personal items loaned by the family. They also house original exhibits related to Vonnegut and galleries dedicated to veteran artists. The KVML is not only a building full of artifacts. They strive to be a community asset, offering classes, workshops, and a gathering space for our neighbors on Indiana Ave., Indianapolis, and beyond.
This year Vonnegut would have turned 100 on November 11, 2022. It’s a special year for the KVML and we’ll hear Julia discuss all about the museum, their programs, Vonnegut, and some of his special connections to classical music.
