The Kurt Vonnegut Museum and Library champions the legacy of Hoosier author Kurt Vonnegut and the principles of free expression, common decency, and peaceful coexistence he advocated. Please consider Running for Our Cause on November 3rd!
Kurt Vonnegut’s literary legacy provides the building blocks upon which the Kurt Vonnegut Museum and Library (KVML) stands: We can make a difference by our responses to the big questions and issues of our time, and we do it with civility. A cultural and educational resource, museum, art gallery and gathering space for readers, writers, artists, and students, the Kurt Vonnegut Museum and Library honors Vonnegut and his dual legacies of creativity and civil discourse. Since its founding in 2009, over 200,000 people have visited or participated in arts and humanities programs.
We are excited to partner with Beyond Monumental and Run for a Cause for the first time. Please consider supporting KVML through the Monumental Marathon, Half Marathon, or 5K run on November 3rd. Get out there and run the very same streets that Kurt ran/walked/hung out on as a teenager in the 1930’s and 40’s. Kurt was adamant about common decency and advocating for the underdog, and we at KVML work to continue his legacy in this 2017 Year of Vonnegut and beyond. With your help, funds earned will support future programming for Indy residents and visitors to the city from all over the world. Some of our staff will be out there running with you. Others will man a drink station. And keep an eye out … Kurt Vonnegut “himself” may give you a high five and cheer you on as you go by!
