Corporate Partnership

Sponsor an Exhibition or Event

Your company or organization can partner with the Dayton Art Institute to help us present world-class exhibitions, events and programs for the community. As a non-profit organization, the museum relies on the generous support of our sponsors to fulfill our mission. Without that support, we couldn’t bring you special exhibitions, events like Bourbon & Bubbles, Oktoberfest and Art Ball, or the many educational programs that touch thousands of young lives every year.

A variety of sponsorship opportunities and levels are available, ranging from donations of goods and services to leadership support of events and special exhibitions.

For more information about available sponsorship opportunities and benefits, contact Kate Edstrom
Engagement & Corporate Giving Officer, at 
937-223-5277, ext. 236 or kedstrom@daytonart.org
