What's Great In Dayton: July 24 - 30, 2020

Our Century: Dayton Area Collects is on display now at Dayton Art Institute
Dayton Art Institute
Dayton Art Institute has reopened to the public.

Do you have a used musical instrument you no longer need? You can make it sing again in the hands of a young musician. It's time once again for It's Instrumental, a musical instrument drive that benefits aspiring young musicians in the Dayton region. During the past few years hundreds of instruments have been collected for students in area schools and for musicians in the Q the Music program. All kinds of instruments are accepted even those in need of repair as well as accessories like carrying cases and bows. Drop off instruments by August 15th at a local Grismer Tire & Auto Service Center.

The University of Dayton's Erma Bombeck Writers' Workshop is seeking essays from a diversity of authors of all experience levels for Nickie’s Prize for Humor Writing. Essayists, authors, bloggers — anyone with a hilarious touching story — is invited to submit a humorous essay about their sister (or soul sister). The deadline is August 1.

The Contemporary Dayton, in collaboration with the Dayton Daily News, is seeking digital photos for In the Balance: Reflections of Our Community During COVID. It will be published as a photo spread insert for an upcoming Dayton Daily News Sunday edition. Deadline is August 1.

Two local famous places are now open. The Dayton Art Institute is opening today, and when it’s hot and humid that’s a perfect place to be inside.Check out their rules at their website.

The other place that is now open is the Aullwood Audubon. Their website gives special info about the opening.
