Prop Road Show Visits The Barrington

As part of our outreach effort, the Indianapolis Propylaeum board and friends have visited three retirement communities to meet with Prop members who may no longer visit the Propylaeum on a regular basis. On March 26, the Prop Road Show visited The Barrington, in Carmel and were warmly greeted by long-time member Mary Jean Alig and former foundation board member Bill Browne. We love to meet with members to share our goals for the Propylaeum, but more importantly to record stories from Prop members about when they joined the Prop and their favorite memories.

A purple scarf might be an appropriate accent to wear when Bishop Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows speaks Thursday, April 25th, as the third and final speaker in the 2018-2019 Marilyn K. Glick Women's Enrichment Series. Purple scarves were worn by supporters of more women in the clergy at her church's general convention. Purple symbolized breaking the stained glass ceiling for women, where only 13 percent of the clergy are women. Bishop Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows, who grew up in the projects of New York City, made world-wide news when she was elected the first African-American female diocesan bishop of the Episcopalian church in 2017. The projects didn't define her as she graduated from Smit

WES Goes to School

As part of the Propylaeum’s Women Enrichment Series, we offer the outreach program WES Goes to School. Last year WES sponsored Angela Brown’s performance for the entire Shortridge student body.

This year on April 25, WES will underwrite taking Aleta Hodge, author of Indiana Avenue – Life and Musical Journey from 1915 to 2015, to her alma mater Shortridge High School. Hodge will be accompanied by local jazz musicians. Together they will tell the history, in stories and music, of the great Indianapolis jazz musicians
