The Modern and Contemporary Reciprocal Program (Mod/Co)

Artist Member Perspectives

The Contemporary Dayton is inclusive—we celebrate the vast range of media, style, and level of art-making that exists in the greater Dayton area and connect it to the greater region. We help connect the public to art and the individuals creating it. Members experience the pleasure of original art that is engaging, that comes with stories and people attached.
