Dayton’s got a problem with brain drain—young people get an education here, then leave to use those skills somewhere else. The organization UpDayton was created in part to combat that, and it’s now in its sixth year and holding a summit this Friday.
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 and Elizabeth Turks' Wings are on display now through January 5th at the Dayton Art Institute.
