On the heels of the 50th anniversary of the Studio Glass movement in America in 2012, the special exhibition, Dayton Celebrates Glass: Chihuly, Littleton, Labino and Beyond, showcases the Dayton Region’s love of studio glass, ranging from the early pioneers of the studio movement through today’s artistic innovators.
Featured permanent collection objects in the exhibition include portraits, textiles, Asian belt buckles, Byzantine rings, African bracelets, European lace and Asian fans. Costumes from the Wright State Theater Departmentwill be displayed alongside artists’ installations and hands-on gallery activities for all ages, preschool to adult.
Imagine yourself walking through a labyrinth lined wiht quilts that tell you about the world’s major faiths. As you walk through the labyrinth, you become aware that the central message in all of these life-views have their roots in the same moral belief.

What images come to mind? The mega-fauna of the Artic, Serengeti and Amazon? The bison of Yellowstone, the Snowy Egrets of the Everglades, or the wildflowers of the Great Smokey Mountains? Perhaps thoughts turn to the denizens of a backyard pond or the multitude of insects in an urban garden. The Hallway of Wonder at the Marie S. Aull Education Center is a wonderful place to view the 22nd annual art quilt exhibit Wild Lands, Wild Life. Enjoy these works of art by talented fiber artists from around the country who have interpreted this theme.
Exciting hands-on activities enable children to explore the world of nature and farming. Educational experiences are age appropriate for 2 year olds to 8th grade.
