A day at the Dayton Art Institute: Part 2

The Dayton Art Institute is a place of great beauty, repose and tranquility. It provides an escape from the hustle and bustle of every day life as her visitors are whisked away to learn about other eras and cultures. I urge anyone wishing to relax and unwind for a couple of hours to visit the stately galleries, tempting bistro and eclectic museum gift shop.

The Dayton Art Institute houses many splendid works of art-ranging from African sculpture to beautiful works in glass.
