Interior & Exterior Naming Opportunities

You can leave a lasting legacy and join the evolution by pledging your support. Individuals, families, businesses, and corporations can name various features of our new space in their names or in honor of someone special in their lives. Each opportunity will afford donors or those they choose to recognize, with an engraved commemorative plaque, prominent recognition for years to come as a visible part of The Contemporary Dayton.

10-foot-tall, lighted steel columns sited on our 4th Street and Rotunda Entrances

Custom Reclaimed Ash Reception Desk-Sculpture
ACQUIRED: In Memory of H. Stephen Wargo / Houser Asphalt & Concrete 
In a space that celebrates art, our permanent fixtures must combine form and function. Our interior design includes custom furniture pieces, works of art in themselves. This custom reception desk by artist Shon Walters draws the public in while serving as the command post for our space. Walters will be using Ash Trees that were fallen at Sinclair Park during the 2019 Dayton tornados.
