Life in the City
"Life in the City" strives to showcase original artwork from artists all over the world, inspired by modern urban lifestyle and architecture. The spectrum of artwork ranges from straightforward presentation to conceptual. The exhibit is held annually at Front Street, during the month of August.
Front Street is the largest community of artists, artisans, and small business owners in Dayton Ohio, conveniently located just off State Route 35 at Keowee and 3rd Street-across from the U haul store.

For the full experience visit us during one of our monthly open-house events and get to know our painters, jewelers, sculptors, curators, photographers, mixed media artists, seamstresses, and the list goes on.
