Dayton Art Institute (DAI) Presents Creating the New Century: Contemporary Art from the Dicke Collection

Creating the New Century, is a special exhibition, on view through JULY 10, 2011. organized by The Dayton Art Institute, features 70 paintings, drawings, and sculptures – all created since the year 2000 – from the Dicke collection.

Sixty-nine artists are represented by works that document the range of styles and technical concerns, as well as social and political issues, that engage artists in the 21st century.

While many works are by well-known painters and sculptors who have participated in museum and gallery exhibitions and received reviews in arts periodicals, others are less well known in a selection characterized by the curiosity and tastes of the collector.

Creating the New Century offers an opportunity to explore aspects of contemporary art practice firsthand and presents the accomplishments of a number of artists whose work has not previously been exhibited in Southwest Ohio.

The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue with essays by James F. Dicke II and Janice Driesbach, essays on and comments by each of the participating artists, and all of the works illustrated in color.
