Dayton Art Institute opens Storm, Watershed & Riverbank

Dayton Art Institute presents Storm, Watershed & Riverbank. Three Exhibitions Commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the 1913 Flood an event that changed the physicality and focus of cities along Ohio’s Great Miami River on view February 23 2013 – May 5 2013.

n 1913, an unusually potent winter storm system caused a weather event that researcher Trudy Bell considers the United States’ most widespread natural disaster. Disastrous flooding of the five rivers that converge in downtown Dayton occurred when the equivalent of three months worth of rain fell during four days in March 1913.

Cultural and historical organizations, with leadership from the Miami Conservancy District, will mount exhibits and host activities in observance of this watershed moment in our region. The Dayton Art Institute will participate by presenting a suite of three exhibitions commemorating the 100th anniversary of the 1913 flood.
