My sister happened to be off from work yesterday, so we made a trip the Dayton Art Institute for an afternoon immersed in art history.
Amongst other value deals, admission is free for students. Upon arrival we saw that the Andy Warhol: Athletes and the Art of Sport exhibit was still in town (through September 1st) so we paid the $10 to view it first.
The exhibit was small and we were done fairly quickly which left us with the rest of our afternoon to browse the other galleries.
It was very peaceful and relaxing to walk through the bright, wide open galleries and marvel at the artistic talent and history that is preserved there. My favorite galleries were Post World War II and Modern Americanism. The artwork in these rooms were so colorful and abstract.
We spent a fair bit of time enjoying the shaded walk around the Italian Cloister and of course snapping lots of pictures. I could've napped in such a lovely place between the sound of the fountain and the classical music pushing through the overhead speakers.
And some playtime in the children's area, the Experiencenter. It was right up my ally because their latest exhibit is called, I See Rhythm. And in their words, it is designed for hands on exploration of the creative space between Art and Music. I highly recommend taking children to see and explore...
