Each year, Dayton Live 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’s exhibit, at the Schuster Center from January 26-March 31, 2022, is 2022 Dayton Skyscrapers featuring the work of African American visual artists from the Miami Valley.The Artist Reception will be on Saturday, February 26 from 2:00-4:00pm in the Wintergarden of the Schuster Center. The Dayton Skyscrapers art project is not a celebration of Dayton’s tall buildings or our skyline. Dayton Skyscrapers is a metaphor for those local and regional African Americans who stand tall in our minds and hearts for what they have achieved in their field and their contributions to the quality of life of Dayton and the Miami Valley Region. The Visual Voices 2022 team of Dayton and Miami Valley African American visual artists have selected a core of high-achieving African Americans as Dayton Skyscrapers.
