By Jay Harvey STAR STAFF WRITER aymond Leppard wittily predicted the new building would become known as the "Christel Palace," a pun on the Crystal Palace that was the pride of Victorian London. Speaking from the stage of the Ruth Lilly Performance Hall, the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra's music director was among a parade of speakers at the gala opening concert Thursday of the Christel DeHaan Fine Arts Center at the University of Indianapolis. DeHaan, an Indianapolis businesswoman who attended the university and now serves on its board of trustees, told the gathering of invited guests that the arts tell "the marvelous chronicle of humanity" that the new center is designed to help celebrate. President G. Benjamin Lantz Jr. welcomed more than 400 guests and introduced the speakers. He also announced that Leppard will be made artist-in-residence, delivering an annual lecture (perhaps a series) and serving as "a valued consultant on our musical programs and as a friend of the University of Indianapolis." Now in his seventh season as music director of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, Leppard received an honorary doctorate from U of I in 1991. He will appear with the ISO at the DeHaan Center twice in June for the new Summer Serenade series. The 59,000-square-foot building houses the university's art and music departments. In addition to the Ruth Lilly Performance Hall, the center contains an art gallery, music and art studios, faculty offices, music practice rooms, band and choir rehearsal rooms and an 80-seat lecture hall. It was built on a budget of $10.2 million. After the speeches were over, Leppard and a 34-piece version of See OPENING Page 2 Our Picks Compiled by The Star staff I -V' i' fJ" 'CiM'f j;,; .

And don't plop it Into that "give one, take one" container near the drugstore cash register! See, that poor little copper thing could be worth $100 or more if it bears what appears to be a double Image of Abraham Lincoln on front or the Lincoln Memorial on back. Much has been written about Ameri- cans who don't pick up pennies anymore, mainly because a penny alone doesn't buy much In today's economy. Indeed, when's the last time you bought penny candy? But coin collectors say that red cent you leave on the sidewalk could be an ln-demand item among folks who know what to look for. "You will occasionally find some collectible contemporary coins usually because of a misprint," says Jennifer Holdren, a local coin dealer. Such errors can be found on a small number of pennies minted In 1972, '83 and '84. Lincoln's Image appears slightly doubled on the '72 and '83 pennies, as does the Lincoln Memorial on back of the '84 coin. "They're called double-die coins be-cause they were mistakenly stamped ' twice," says Holdren, who will be among 3,000 dealers or collectors from 13 states at this weekend's 55th anniversary Cen- tral States Numismatic Convention here; '. "They could still pop up In circulation and would be quite a find." Pennies are popular collector's Items See PENNY Page 2 CONCERTS Deer Creek adds Depeche Mode, Bonnie Raitt and Phil Collins By Marc D.
