Spotlight : Riffe Gallery - Imagining Flight: Explorations By Dayton Artists
IMAGINING FLIGHT: EXPLORATIONS BY DAYTON ARTISTS
July 24 - October 19, 2003
Curated by Kay Koeninger, Imagining Flight celebrates the centennial of Orville and Wilbur Wright's remarkable achievement. The legacy of Dayton's Wright Brothers is evident in the western Ohio city even today. As a result, the artists in the exhibition take highly personal approaches to the theme of flight, employing a wide range of inspiration and media, including painting, drawing, video, photography, bookmaking, fiber art, sculpture and performance.
The exhibition includes 39 works by 12 Dayton-area artists inspired by the concept of flight.
