Irsay exhibit at the State Museum

Want a look into the mind of Jim Irsay?  Now’s your chance.  The Indiana State Museum is featuring “Chaos is a Friend of Mine: Cultural Icons from the Jim Irsay Collection” from January 27, 2012 through May 6, 2012.  Among the pop culture artifacts are Jim’s well-known and valuable guitars:

“The great thing about the guitars is not only do you have a great historical piece, but you have a great guitar you can play.”

The one he treasures above most all others is Jerry Garcia’s “Tiger” which is also in the display, as the centerpiece of the Dead Collection.

“There is a stash box in here that Jerry used to use when he went international and needed to hide his vegetables.” 

Yeah…Jerry Garcia was hiding vegetables.

About Todd Smith

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
