Get to know your Dayton Art Institute with our new Object of the Month gallery talks! Join us in the museum’s collection galleries for an in-depth talk, led by a Museum Guide, and learn more about an object from the collection. A different object will be featured each month, with the gallery talk being presented on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month at 11:30 a.m. and the 3rd Thursday of each month at 6:00 p.m.
As the museum celebrates its centennial, Object of the Month kicks off in June with the first piece added to the collection: Harriet Frishmuth’s Joy of the Waters (1917)! Learn more about this visitor favorite and its long history at the DAI! Upcoming talks take place June 15 & 20.
Check back often for updates about upcoming Object of the month talks. Topics subject to change. Call 937-223-4ART (4278) for more information or to confirm subjects.
