What is ReImagining Works?

ReImagining Works is a partnership between the Dayton Metro Library and The Dayton Art Institute to acquire original artwork for each of the Dayton Metro Library’s newly built or renovated branches. Giving creativity a central place in the “re-imagining” of the traditional role of the library, the Library is offering regional artists the opportunity to create a new work inspired by an artwork held in the permanent collection of The Dayton Art Institute. Bringing two of Dayton’s iconic institutions together, both places of discovery, inspiration and knowledge, ReImagining Works pays homage to artistic traditions of the past while creating art for the future.
