Eiteljorg Insider | Meet Agave President Justin Sufan

by Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art | Jul 10, 2014



Tonight, beginning at 5:30, Agave, the Eiteljorg's young professionals' auxiliary will co-host a "Sip & Learn" event featuring Modern Spirit: The Art of George Morrison at the Eiteljorg and 431 Gallery: Art and Impact, at the Indiana State Museum. Agave is teaming up with 1816, the State Museum's young professionals' group. 

Lots of planning goes into developing an event that takes 20-to-30 somethings to two museums in the same night. And, Agave's dedicated and creative team works hard to make it happen. We asked Agave President Justin Sufan a few questions about Agave and why young professionals should join!

EITELJORG BLOG: What interested you in joining Agave?

 JUSTIN: Other than having an appreciation of the local arts scene, I've always had a special interest in the Eiteljorg Museum.  I remember originally visiting the Eiteljorg at a young age on a school field trip, and since then I've always held the Museum in high regard.  A few years ago while attending IndyHub's Get IndyVolved event at the Children's Museum, I came across the Agave booth.  The Agave members had a lot of exciting things to share about the Museum, and I joined on the spot!  Like many other young professionals in Indianapolis, I find that Agave offers the perfect blend of networking coupled with the Arts.

 EITELJORG BLOG: What plans do you have to make the Agave experience even better this year?

JUSTIN:  We look to offer a Young Professional (YP) experience that's very different agavehappyhouranseladams1from what other YP groups in Indy offer.  Agave closed out a successful 2013 and, in large part, this was due to the help of a new and engaged auxiliary board.  We plan to build on that success in 2014.  We've had exciting events the first half of the year and even more planned later - including Jorgstock on the Canal August 23, our Freiteljorg Halloween party in October, and a Holiday party in December.  Of course we'll continue to offer Happy Hour events throughout the year.  All of our events celebrate the Museum, and feature a current exhibit.

EITELJORG BLOG: Why should young professionals join Agave?

JUSTIN: There is something distinct here at the Eiteljorg.  Your participation in Agave opens doors to a great network of intelligent and contemporary community leaders in Indianapolis who share an appreciation of culture and the arts...  and at only $30 a year, the value far exceeds the entry point.  We have an inviting Agave board and we make personal connections with all of our members.  We have great events, opportunities to meet new people, and excellent educational programs. Finally, our events are FUN.  They range from low key curator-led Happy Hour events to raucous parties on the canal with incredible bands and DJs.  Not to mention, all of our events are open to the public so you can bring your friends too!

Justin works full time in regulatory affairs for Indianapolis Power & Light Co.
