Five new downtown murals have been painted on downtown buildings as part of the Urban Art Intersections (UAI) project.
Created by the DDP in partnership with K12 Gallery & TEJAS and the Dayton Visual Arts Center, the initiative seeks to use public art as a way to connect local artists with the community and engage downtown Dayton residents, workers, and visitors with their city in a unique way, while enlivening downtown’s streetscapes. For the first phase, five small mural designs were selected from numerous submissions to be applied to downtown buildings.
UAI is made possible with support from a grant from the Ohio Arts Council. UAI partners hope to secure funding to continue the project, adding
more murals in the next phase. In addition, the City of Dayton is funding one more mural design for the Transportation Center parking garage across from the future Levitt Pavilion site.
UAI partners hope to secure funding to continue the project, adding more murals in 2018.
