Art in the City is designed to illuminate local artists and the local art scene through a series of one-person “pop-up” exhibitions of local artists’ artwork based on the theme of “Paint. Perform. Party” in 10 downtown Dayton business, arts and community venues. Works will be on view August 2-16, 2019. The public will be invited to view shows and vote for their favorite. Votes will be tallied and Art in the City will culminate with a prize award of $250 and announcement Friday, August 16. Selected Art in the City artists will be exhibited and promoted by a partnership between The Contemporary Dayton and the Downtown Dayton Partnership and be part of the 3rd annual citywide initiative to propel Dayton’s distinction as a city of creatives to visitors, out-of-towners and the region.
