Program Update: Object of the Month is now being offered online. Check back for updates and information about in-person talks.
Get to know your Dayton Art Institute with our Object of the Month gallery talks! Join us for an in-depth talk, led by a DAI Museum Guide, and learn more about an object from the collection. A different object is featured each month.
In-person talks (when they resume) will take place on the 1st Thursday (6 p.m.) and 3rd Saturday (11:30 a.m.) of each month, unless otherwise noted. Check back often for topic updates.
