Objects of Devotion is the Dayton Art Institute's newest special exhibit.  It features over 60 alabaster sculptures that were originally displayed in homes and churches in Medieval England.  Objects of Devotion is being paired with Wings, a modern sculpture exhibition by Elizabeth Turk. WYSO's Juliet Fromholt spoke with curator Aimee Marcereau DeGalan in the gallery ahead of the exhibits' opening last week.

Objects of Devotion and Elizabeth Turks' Wings are on display now through January 5th at the Dayton Art Institute.
