INDIANAPOLIS -- A landmark of Indiana music will help open Indiana Landmarks' new home.
Hoosier John Mellencamp, who is currently on tour, will take a break from the tour and return to Indiana to perform at the grand opening of the Indiana Landmark Center April 16.
Dubbed the Wondrous Opening Weekend (WOW), the festivities April 16-17 will celebrate Indiana Landmarks' restoration and adaptation of a 120-year-old building, located at 12th Street and Central Avenue in Indianapolis.
Mellencamp will provide a 30-minute acoustic performance, beginning at 4 p.m., April 16, during the Landmark Premiere at Indiana Landmarks Center.
The Landmark Premiere is the first in a series of events to unveil the former Methodist Church complex.
The restored center includes two theaters, reception halls and meeting spaces in addition to the headquarters of Indiana Landmarks.
The Landmark Premiere will include cocktails, dinner, and more.
On Sunday, April 17, Indiana Landmarks is inviting the public to tour the complex during a free open house from 11 a.m.-2 p.m.
Indiana Landmarks -- formerly Historic Landmarks Foundation of Indiana -- is a private non-profit organization.
What began as an all-volunteer group has grown to the largest statewide preservation group in the United States, with 6,000 members and a staff of 42 in 10 offices throughout the state.
