Dayton Life: DAI Exhibits

HelenThis evening, Sister Helen Prejean spoke at UD about her activism against the death penalty and her counseling of death row prisoners. This presentation is a part of a city-wide conversation on Human Rights, Faith and Reason during which the Dayton Art Institute is collaborating with UD to present artist Julie Green's The Last Supper: 600 Plates Illustrating the Final Meals of U.S. Death Row Inmates. This installation, presented in the Special Exhibition Galleries Annex at the DAI, consists of porcelain plates painted with the final meal requests of those on death row. Admission to the exhibition is free for UD students and DAI members. 

Also on display is Decked Out!, showing the art and culture of body adornment, jewelry, and costume. Featuring Asian belt bucklers, Byzantine rings, African bracelets, and Asian fans, visitors can interactively learn the history of dress, makeup, and costume.
