Melissa Merli: It's time to head east for some fun

One of the events I really want to check out this summer is the exhibition "Face to Face: The Neo-Impressionist Portrait, 1886—1904" at the Indianapolis Museum of Art.

It was co-curated by Jane Block, who recently retired as the head of the Ricker Library of Architecture and Art at the University of Illinois.

He and his equally talented wife, artist Meredith Foster, live in Urbana and have mounted some of the more interesting and adventuresome exhibits I've seen.
