Veterans Community Day
Free and Open Admission in Honor of Veterans Day
The Dayton Art Institute’s Veterans Community Day on Friday, November 11, honors all military veterans by welcoming the entire community to enjoy free admission all day, with access to our Special Exhibition, American Myth & Memory: David Levinthal Photographs, and Focus Exhibition, Joe Fig: Other Artists, along with the museum’s extensive collection of American, Asian and European fine and decorative art.
DAI, also a Blue Star Museum, is among more than 2,000 museums across the country, through a collaboration with the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, and the Department of Defense, that offers free access to the museum throughout the summer for military families.
“DAI has a tradition of serving and giving back to military personnel and their families,” said Director and CEO Michael Roediger. “As a Blue Star Museum, military families visiting DAI have created memories through shared experiences with our art, cultural activities and events. I’m proud to offer another opportunity for our staff and volunteers to serve our veterans and the entire community.”
In addition to touring the DAI’S collection and Special and Focus Exhibitions, Veterans Community Day guests can view a curated list of artworks by artists that were in the military or painted depictions of conflict in history.
The museum is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, November 11.
