Budgets are tight this year, but that does not mean the spirit of Christmas will pass us Hoosiers by. In an effort to stimulate our collective Christmas spirit, many Indianapolis businesses are participating in Twelve Free Days of Christmas around Indianapolis. The Percussive Arts Society’s Rhythm! Discovery Center in Indianapolis downtown, will be open all day today FREE to all Indianapolis people. From 10:00 am to 8:00 pm on Monday, December 14, this brand new Indianapolis museum invites the Circle City to see what is going down!
The Rhythm! Discovery Center opened in November 2009. This new Indianapolis attraction is run by the Percussive Arts Society, which relocated to Indy in April of 2007. This newly centralized Indianapolis nonprofit organization serves teachers and students of percussion not only in central Indiana but around the entire United States. Their newly opened Rhythm! Discovery Center is an opportunity for the man (or woman) off the street to interact with the mission of the Percussive Arts Society and the Rhythm! Discovery Center.
This new Indianapolis museum is great for Indianapolis kids. With a number of hands-on exhibits, participatory opportunities and a collection of rare and common percussion instruments on display, the Rhythm! Discovery Center is the newest contribution to Indianapolis music and Indianapolis education. At the Rhythm! Discovery Center rhythm in our culture is unlocked. The experience of the Rhythm! Discovery Center introduces people to the role of rhythm and percussion in music and culture through dynamic educational experiences.
This newest visionary branch of the Percussive Arts Society furthers their mission to advance awareness of percussion education, research, performance and appreciation throughout the world! Originally in Lawton, Oklahoma under the alias the Percussive Arts Museum, the Rhythm! Discovery Center is a new and improved version of the percussive museum concept. With the most extensive and unique display of rare percussion instruments and artifacts from many different cultures around the world, the new Rhythm! Discovery Center has more space and convenient pedestrian access. Located next to the Indianapolis Artsgarden in the Circle Centre Mall, directly under the Weber Grill Restaurant, the Rhythm!
