The Dayton Visual Arts Center - DVAC - is all about the art being made today, in and around Dayton, Ohio. There is a wealth of talent here, and we invite everyone to experience real, original art and to engage in conversation about it.
You don't have to be an artist to join us - looking at art is half the fun, and "lookers" are half of our membership. While some of us are artists, we are also art supporters, educators and advocates. We are community-minded, culturally connected, and passionate about visual art. We don't all agree on what we like, but we all agree art is important.
DVAC is inclusive - we celebrate the vast range of media, style, and level of art-making that exists in the greater Dayton area. We help connect the public to local art and the individuals creating it. Members experience the pleasure of original art that is engaging, that comes with stories and people attached. So, if you:
- Want a gallery art experience without having to pay admission or make reservations
- Want to know more about local artists
- Like to be connected to others who share your artistic interests
- Like to be part of a diverse, friendly, community-based organization
Then the Dayton Visual Arts Center is for you!
It is easy to join.
