Design Zone
Mar 3 all-day

Imagine a virtual gaming world where you’re the artist and the hero, where you can engineer a roller coaster that touches the sky—or become a famous DJ that drops the beat in front of hundreds of fans.

Exhibit: Decked Out
Mar 3 all-day

Each spring, a new theme emerges in The DAI’s Experiencenter, which was the nation’s first interactive, intergenerational museum gallery. This year, we will explore the art and culture of body adornment, jewelry, and costume.

Exhibit: The Last Supper
Mar 3 all-day

As part of a city-wide conversation on Human Rights, Faith and Reason during 2015, The Dayton Art Institute and the University of Dayton present artist Julie Green’s The Last Supper: 600 Plates Illustrating Final Meals of U.S. Death Row Inmates. This installation of delicately painted porcelain plates raises tough questions about the humanity of the death penalty. The exhibition is in support of and in conjunction with the Dayton Opera’s production of Jake Heggie’s Dead Man Walking and a February 26 lecture at the University of Dayton by Sr. Helen Prejean, author of the book Dead Man Walking.

Exhibit: Visual Voices: Dayton Skyscrapers 6
Mar 3 all-day

Each February, Victoria Theatre Association partners with Shango Center for African-American Art and Culture, and Willis “Bing” Davis, curator of Dayton’s EbonNia Gallery, to display an exhibit of art by local African-American artists inside the Schuster Center. Exhibits are built around a theme. Past themes have included a tribute to Paul Lawrence Dunbar, Dayton’s role in funk music, and “Dayton Skyscrapers,” which celebrate African-American men and women who stand tall as role models in the community.
