Music & Concerts
Music has been an integral part of the Dayton Art Institute since the museum’s early years and continues to be prominently featured. The Bob Ross Auto Group Jazz & Beyond series presents some of the best local and regional jazz performers in the Shaw Gothic Cloister. In addition, regular performances are held throughout the year on the historic Skinner pipe organ in the Mimi and Stuart Rose Auditorium. The Dayton Art Institute also partners with other arts organizations, such as the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra, University of Dayton and WYSO to present other concerts.
