DAYTON, OH.- The Dayton Art Institute is taking part in community commemorations of the 100th anniversary of the 1913 flood with a suite of three special exhibitions, on view February 23 – May 5.

Cultural and historical organizations from Piqua to Hamilton, with leadership from the Miami Conservancy District, have mounted exhibits and host activities commemorating the anniversary of the 1913 flood, an event that changed the physicality and focus of cities along Ohio’s Great Miami River. The Dayton Art Institute presents three exhibitions that offer a distinctly artistic perspective: Storm: Paintings by April Gornik, Watershed: 100 Years of Photography along the Great Miami River, and Riverbank: Exploring Our River-Centered Development.

Storm, Watershed and Riverbank are exhibited with support from Presenting Sponsor Jacob G. Schmidlapp Trusts, Fifth Third Bank, Trustee, Benefactor Sponsor The Berry Family Foundation, Patron Sponsors Wanda and Bill Lukens, and Premier Health Partners, and Supporting Sponsor The Dayton Power & Light Company Foundation, with additional support from French Oil Mill Machinery Company. The exhibitions are curated by The Dayton Art Institute’s Associate Director, Jane A. Black.

Storm features the large-scale storm paintings of contemporary artist April Gornik. Her work nearly crackles with the kind of electric, kinetic energy that moves in the air as a storm approaches. Six paintings loaned by Danese Gallery in New York City join The DAI’s spectacular Gornik painting, The Back of the Storm. Gornik will be at the museum on Saturday, March 23, at 2:30 p.m. to talk about her work.

Watershed, based on a new publication by the Miami Conservancy District, pairs historical images of the flood with contemporary photographs of those locations by Dayton artist Andy Snow. The exhibition will also explore the development of photography over the past 100 years. Snow will be at the museum on Saturday, March 23, at 4 p.m. to talk about his work.

Riverbank presents images and information that capture development concepts and realities along the Great Miami River, including both past and current plans. Guests will be invited to share their thoughts and ideas about development along the river.
