Be part of a likeminded COmmunity

Here at The Co, we have spent the last year working hard to connect our community with creativity.

We presented 36 artists, from near and far, in thought-provoking exhibitions and engaging education programs. The art that filled our gallery provided a meaningful way for over 40,000 visitors to travel the world, challenging ideas and exposing blind spots. We awarded over $267,500 in public art commissions to local artists, helping career-elevating work to have a home in Dayton and increasing our economic contributions to the region for 2023 to $2.6 million.

Each endeavor has brought us closer together as a community that seeks and values creativity. And for that, we are grateful.

You, as part of our likeminded COmmunity, can make a difference by supporting The Co’s hard work with a gift. Your contribution, no matter the amount, will go towards sustaining exhibitions, programming, and artist opportunities for another year.

Let contemporary art be the constant that inspires us, the fuel that ignites our passions, and the force that drives us forward in 2024.

Evolution Campaign

Artists give their voices to issues around the world. Not only through their art but also by simply helping us reflect and communicate on topics that words alone often struggle to convey.

On behalf of the Board of Trustees of The Contemporary Dayton, thank you for making our Evolution Campaign an incredible success!
