Annual Visual Voices Exhibit

Overview

Each year, Victoria Theatre Association partners with Shango: Center for the Study of African American Art and Culture, and Willis “Bing” Davis, exhibit curator and director of EbonNia Gallery, to display an exhibit of art by local African-American artists inside the Schuster Center. This year, as the city of Dayton joins the nation in commemorating the 50th anniversary of the death of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the KING/DUNBAR PROJECT was designed to celebrate the life and work of Dr. King through the literary voice of Dayton poet, Paul Laurence Dunbar.

The KING/DUNBAR PROJECT is one of the major programs of Shango: Center for the Study of African-American Art and Culture, the non-profit wing of the Davis Art Studio in the Wright Dunbar Historic District. Corporate support has been received from the Dayton Power & Light Foundation, The Dayton Foundation African-American Community Fund, and ZIKS Family Pharmacy.

The 2018 exhibit will be displayed February 11-March 30 at the Schuster Center, April-June at the EbonNia Gallery on West Third Street, and at DP&L Headquarters during June and July.

If your group would like a tour of the exhibit while it’s at the Schuster Center, please email visualvoices@victoriatheatre.com or call 937-228-7591, ext. 3032.
