It's been a few weeks since some unknowns slipped into Venue 515 and waterlogged the place, but the Business of Art Center is continuing the clean up admirably, and it's setting its sights on a Sept. 15 opening.
Though still tentative, BAC representative (and Indy freelance writer) Rhonda Van Pelt says it will likely be a celebration to officially christen Natalie Johnson as executive director, and a "fond farewell" for former interim ED Linda Boedeker and her husband, Greg Jamieson, a longtime accountant for the BAC.
Van Pelt adds that they've received "a large, gratifying number of members" — the BAC's preferred manner of donations — in the recent weeks, including those who purchased at the benefit J. Miller Band concert at Stargazers Theatre & Event Center earlier this month. More memberships, new and renewed are welcome.
Meanwhile, the Manitou Springs police continue to investigate.
