Entry Description

Arts Commission anniversary video nets award for Indianapolis-based marketing firm     


(Indianapolis, Indiana)The Indiana Arts Commission (IAC) announced today that a video produced to celebrate the agency’s 50th anniversary recently earned Indianapolis-based TrendyMinds an international award of excellence.


A 2016 Davey Award in the Film/Video Gold category was awarded to TrendyMinds for the creation of the video “Fifty Years.” The video celebrates the history of Indiana artists and the Indiana Arts Commission, and was produced as a focal point of the Bicentennial Governor’s Arts Awards.


“It was a privilege for us to have the opportunity to showcase 50 years of championing the arts by the Indiana Arts Commission,” said Trevor Yager, President and CEO of TrendyMinds, and one of the IAC’s 15 Commissioners. “We felt the film captured the essence of some of the remarkable artists that live and work in Indiana. And to be honored with a Gold Davey Award, made the film even more special for us.”


The video features an original poem “Hoosier Quilt,” composed by Indiana State Poet Laureate Shari Wagner and narrated by 2016 Indiana Poetry Out Loud State Champion Grace Milligan. Music for the video was composed by Butler University music student Timothy Carlos and performed by a quartet of Butler University music students.


“While the Arts Commission has regularly incorporated video media into our Governor’s Arts Awards programs, the work TrendyMinds did on the anniversary video and our award recipient introductions raised the creative bar significantly,” said Lewis C. Ricci, IAC Executive Director. “We are so excited TrendyMinds received this honor for their contribution to our program.”


The Davey Awards honors the best in web, design, video, advertising, mobile and social media from small agencies worldwide. The Davey is sanctioned and judged by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts, and invitation only body consisting of top-tier professionals from a “Who’s Who” of acclaimed media, advertising, and marketing firms.


The Indiana Arts Commission is dedicated to the vision of the arts everywhere, every day, for everyone in Indiana.
