Best Bets – Week of 8/20


Carmel: Artmobilia – The Monon Depot, 211 1st St. S.W., will feature the Indiana Historical Society’s Auto Indiana Traveling Exhibit, which is a presentation, sponsored by Kroger, of all things auto from inventors such as Elwood Haynes, Ralph Teetor along with automakers like Studebaker and Duesenberg. Visitors also can learn about how (ironically, in our town of roundabouts) a Carmel inventor named Leslie Haines invented a stoplight as a way to address the increase in accidents resulting from horse-drawn carriages encountering cars on the streets. Several local antique car dealers also plan to bring their cars to park on the lawn the day of the event. The Artmobilia Exhibit will be open from 1 to 5 p.m. More information is available at
