A big week for art and architecture
Art, culture and design events were plentiful over the last week in Dayton and Kettering! From art festivals to musical performances to Architecture Week, there was something for everyone.
ART ON THE PLAYGROUND
Rosewood Arts Centre hosted its inaugural Art on the Playground: An Interactive Festival for Kids event on May 4 at Indian Riffle Elementary. Over 700 participants showed up to get dirty with paint, clay, papermaking, charcoal, chalk, and more!
Painter and printmaker Katherine Kadish presented a lecture of 40-years of her work as an artist inspired by nature, light, gesture and color. Kadish is currently working on a commission with the CitySites program of the City of Kettering, with new work being unveiled later in 2013.
OHIO ARTS COUNCIL ARTIST IN RESIDENCE
The City of Kettering and the Ohio Arts Council have teamed up to work with Cincinnati filmmaker Melissa Godoy this spring. As a part of a storytelling series of documentaries, artist Phoebe Gaughan was interviewed by students from Fairmont High School and the staff of Rosewood Arts Centre.
A little rain and loads of fun defined the Friday, May 10 Urban Nights in downtown Dayton. Countless events, art shows, performances, and opportunities showed off the vibrancy of the city to folks from Dayton and afar.
Every May the Yellow Cab Co. transforms into the hottest art show and music venue in town. Bands performed into the wee hours of the morning and dozens of artists showcase their creative endeavors. The event continues through Saturday night, May 11.
AIA is host to a week of tours, events, and interactive opportunities for everyone to be a part of architecture in Dayton. Demos, mural painting, speed dating with architects, and Pecha Kucha are all lined up for the week!
