Public memorial for Milton Lindgren and Eric Hendricks
Public memorial for Milton Lindgren and Eric Hendricks
Thursday, November 20, 2008, 5:30 p.m.
Indianapolis Art Center, Churchman-Fehsenfeld Gallery
820 E. 67th Street, Indianapolis, IN 46220
The Indianapolis Art Center and Indiana Equality invite the public to an evening of remembrance for Milton Lindgren and Eric Hendricks.
Painting of Milton Lingren by Ellie Siskind.*
The community is invited to a memorial for Milton Lindgren and Eric Hendricks who were murdered in their home October 20, 2008. Lindgren was 70; Hendricks, confined to a wheelchair, was 73. They had been subject to vandalism and anti gay statements prior to their violent deaths.
Lindgren, considered a member of the Art Center family, had been a student since 1993 and a model. He and Hendricks are missed by hundreds of students, faculty and staff, in addition to friends and family. Artworks created by faculty and students of Lindgren will be displayed for one night only for the memorial service.
Annie Beck, the Art Center’s Associate Director of Education, announced Lindgren’s passing to the staff with these words, “Milt was a gentle kind person and a highly sought-after model for our classes. Knowing that such a sweet and giving person died such a violent death makes this even more senseless.”
Jon Keep, President of Indiana Equality, authored an editorial titled, “Now more than ever, we need to pass hate crimes law,” that appeared in the Indianapolis Star on Tuesday, November 4, 2008, about the murders. He points out that, “Forty-five states have hate crimes legislation on the books, and the majority of those states cover anti-gay hate crimes.” Indiana is among those states without. “When the state of Indiana doesn’t take bias-motivated crimes seriously, it only encourages violent individuals to brutally murder others.”
Speakers at the memorial will include:
Pastor Dave Dehnke, Harvest Lutheran Church, Mooresville, IN
Erin Rosenberg, from Congressman André Carson's office
Joyce Sommers, Executive Director, Indianapolis Art Center
Douglas S. Hairston, City of Indianapolis
Ellie Siskind, Indianapolis Art Center painting instructor for 25 years
Jon Keep, President of Indiana Equality
Indy Men’s Chorus will sing “Blow Ye the Trumpet” to begin the memorial
Speakers for approx. 25 minutes.
Indy Men’s Chorus ends the memorial with “Walk Hand in Hand.”
Attendees are invited to view artworks created by faculty and staff of Milton Lindgren in the Churchman-Fehsenfeld Gallery. Artworks will be displayed this one night only.
*This painting was recently exhibited (prior to Lindgren’s passing) in a solo exhibition by Siskind at the Art Center titled, “A Cup in Time,” August 29 – October 5, 2008. Siskind is a regionally recognized artist with work in the permanent collections of four Indiana art museums, in addition to being a recipient of the 2002-03 Creative Renewal Grant from the Arts Council of Indianapolis.

We would like to invite you to a very special evening of recognition. Recently, we lost a dear friend, student and model of the Art Center due to very tragic circumstance. Our beloved Milton Lindgren was killed a few short weeks ago, along with his partner, Eric Hendricks, in their home.
On the evening of:

we will be honoring Miltons’ memory with an exhibition of paintings and drawings of Milton, made over the last few years by Art Center faculty and students. We will also have a performance by the Indy Mens chorus, and several speakers to celebrate the spirit of this kind and gentle man.
If you are an Instructor or student that has a painting or drawing of Milton that you would like to share with everyone this evening, please drop off your artwork (with your name and phone number on the back) to the Exhibitions Dept by Wednesday, November 19th.
If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to call Mary Lee Pappas (x223) or myself (x222).

Suspect in Indianapolis deaths arrested in California
By Kevin O'Neal
Posted: November 16, 2008
A man wanted on a warrant in connection with a double slaying in Indianapolis has been arrested in California, according to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.
Michael Brown, 56, was arrested Saturday in San Diego, according to a statement from Sgt. Paul Thompson, Police Department spokesman.
Brown was wanted in the deaths of Eric Hendricks, 73, and Milton Lindgren, 70. The men were found dead Oct. 20 in bedrooms of the house they shared in the 9100 block of Middlebury Way, on the Southwestside near the Hendricks County line.
Brown was originally mentioned by police as a friend of the victims who had found the bodies. In a printed police report, officers said Brown told them he had not heard from Hendricks and Lindgren for a week or two, and he went to their residence. There, according to the statement, Brown told officers he found a rear window was partly open.
The report said Brown and another man told police they entered the house through that window and found the victims' bodies inside.
Court records stated that two murder charges against Brown were filed Thursday and a warrant for his arrest was issued.
Police have not said what led to the deaths.
Call Star reporter Kevin O'Neal at (317) 444-2760.
