IMA Seems to Have a Death Wish

This Indianapolis Observer remembers a time -- not that long ago -- when the Indianapolis Museum of Art reversed its longstanding policy of free admission and started charging $7 per head. (That would be in 2006.)

Visitor numbers dropped so precipitously that the admission charge was rescinded the following year, and free admission returned (albeit with a $5 charge for parking.

Well, folks, those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it -- except this time the admission charge will be an eye-popping $18 to visit the IMA, starting tomorrow.

Good luck with that.
