Dwayne Daniel, Healing Waters, 2018, Digital Art


Exposition Through Art is one of AAVAG’s major programs. Under that umbrella, two-year projects are developed that focus on specific aspects of African American life in and around Dayton (specifically: Dayton, Springfield, Xenia, Wilberforce, Yellow Springs, Middletown, and Cincinnati). Its purpose is to highlight and pay homage to places, people, events, and ideals relevant to the African American experience. 

Historic African American Churches of Southwest Ohio seeks to pay homage to churches not only for their longevity, but for also being a focal point for their congregations and the communities in which they reside. Fifteen artists were provided a list of churches from which to choose and were encouraged to forge relationships that would allow them to delve into church history and current day activities, thus providing inspiration for their creative talents. The exhibit will educate its viewers about the past struggles and accomplishments of these institutions, and will highlight their importance in today’s environment and into the future.
