2004.07.09 Kurt Vonnegut Jr 1
One of the highlights of 2004 for Colleen undoubtedly was one day running into Kurt Vonnegut (if not exactly one of Indiana’s most favorite sons then certainly one of its most famous) at the Indianapolis Art Center.
Colleen was picking Melinda up after her painting class at the Center, and Vonnegut was chatting (and smoking) with a few members of the art center staff outside the building just before the premiere of an art exhibit featuring works by various members of the Vonnegut family.
Colleen joined the group outside, shook Vonnegut's hand, exchanged some small talk about speaking German, and (of course) took some pictures before excitedly going back inside to fetch Melinda from her class. (Photo by Colleen Taber)
