Enjoy a summer evening experiencing vintages al fresco at the fifth annual IU Health North Hospital Art of Wine, a can't-miss event in the Carmel Arts & Design District.

Saturday, July 20 from 5- 10 p.m.
Adults 21 years of age and older are invited to unlimited wine tastings from participating wineries for only $15.

All ages are welcome to attend IU Health North Hospital Art of Wine, enjoy the entertainment, take in unique art and visit the District’s shops and restaurants.

! > Photo identification will be required for all guests who wish to participate in the tasting.

Many of the Carmel Arts & Design District boutiques and merchants will host special sales or promotions during the festival, while the diverse collection of galleries will host exhibits that spotlight wine-inspired works created by local, national and international artists. Some galleries and shops will even bring The Art of Wine to the already-colorful District streetscape by displaying giant, custom-designed wine bottles and glasses transformed by local artists. Again, the District’s galleries, shops, restaurants and entertainment will be available to all ages at Art of Wine.

Please note: The $15 fee for the tasting is cash only. If you wish to purchase bottles of wine at the wineries’ booths, credit cards will be accepted at most locations. ATMs will be available at the following locations:

PNC Bank, 21 N. Range Line Road

Monon & Main Street


Entertainment

Kopecky Family Band
Kopecky

The Kopecky Family Band performance is free to the public as part of IU Health North Hospital Art of Wine.

They have performed at SXSW, Austin City Limits, Lollapalooza and Next Big Nashville festivals. They also spent last year co-headlining with The Lumineers.

Now, through a partnership with WTTS 92.3, we welcome national recording artists, The Kopecky Family Band to the Carmel Arts & Design District main stage for IU Health North Hospital Art of Wine! Their latest collection of tracks is called Kids Raising Kids.

Sometimes song is thicker than blood.

First drawn together amid a college dorm ‘pass the guitar’ session in 2007, Kopecky Family Band co-founders Kelsey Kopecky and Gabe Simon quickly realized that they shared something beyond their alma mater.
“Gabe started playing and I was totally blown away,” Kopecky remembers, “by his melodies, his talent. Something in the way he played felt so familiar to me and moving. I asked him if he wanted to get together and play some, sing some. And a few days later we did that. And it was crazy, it came together immediately– it just fit.”

“I had just met her,” remembers Simon, “but when we sang together, it sounds corny, but it felt like we’d known each other forever. Old souls meeting again. We were finishing each other’s lyrics, just immediately connected in the music.”

This synergy propelled the duo forward and within months they had wrangled the rest of their sonic siblings – Steven Holmes on lead guitar, David Krohn on drums, Markus Midkiff on cello, and Cory Oxendine on bass - making them six in total. Within the year the burgeoning Family had released an EP, Embraces, and embarked on a nearly nonstop touring schedule, garnering fans around the country and developing both their sound… and their ties with one another.

The Kopecky Family Band are built on a foundation of intimately connected musical tones, warm and welcoming melodies, bright and epic symphonic layering - and vocal harmonies that recall all the greats – Gram and Emmylou, June and Johnny and onward and up…

It is a music that contains all the comfort of home while simultaneously embracing a bright, energetic openness - a willingness to explore and expand.

Main stage band performances start at 7 p.m. on Saturday, July 20, 2013.

Tonos Triad
Also enjoy eclectic musical selections from Tonos Triad. The trio will play in the Sophia Square Courtyard from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.

    Art
    We owe deep gratitude to our family of artists who turn large-scale wine bottles and glasses into exquisite artwork. Guests at the event can see them on display throughout the District. Our gallery for 2013 is growing and we raise our glass to this year’s art. Special thanks go out to Café Patachou for allowing us to recycle and re-use their oversized wine bottles.

    NEW FEATURE FOR OUR GUESTS IN 2013:
    The StorAmerica Wine Check!
    Always thinking about guest conveniences, we are thrilled to offer the StorAmerica Wine Check area. This added feature allows IU Health North Hospital Art of Wine guests to purchase bottles of wine from eligible wineries during the evening. Guests can then safely store them at the StorAmerica Wine Check, located within the festival. From there, Art of Wine guests are hands-free and can enjoy the evening without carrying around their treasured vintages!

    At the end of the evening, guests pick-up their bottles from the StorAmerica Wine Check and take them home to enjoy. All bottles must be picked up by 10:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 20, 2013.
