Stopped by Herron the other night to see an alumni show featuring Ashton Dame and Rob Young. Happened upon this bulletin board that's been up since 2011 for the Basile Center bench commissions. Whoever is in charge either lost the keys or just enjoys laughing at these silly pictures everyday.

Matthew Osborn

Matthew Osborn is not only one of the hardest working woodworkers I know, he's also a pro at running a maker space and tracking down grants.

What is one thing that the creative/design community can do in Indianapolis to help grow an audience for custom or handcrafted work? 

I think that word of mouth is hugely important. Recommending other makers/artists makes a big difference. I think that the more you talk about people’s work and the importance of hand made work, the more people think about what they are buying and what they are supporting.
