Your financial support allows the community to see and experience the diversity of visual art being created in the Dayton area and to interact with and know the artists creating it. To that end, AAVAG presents workshops and exhibits in community spaces featuring a wide range of media and styles by local, regional and internationally recognized artists. Throughout the year, AAVAG also sponsors a variety of educational programs for the general public. Your donation will enable us to provide these free workshops.
