Dayton City Paper, Cover story

A creative revolution has been underway in Dayton’s urban landscape. Evidence is found in the plethora of public murals that surprise and delight folks all around the city: the 90-foot flood wall along the Great Miami River, Second Street Market, and the stories-high replicas of masters such Klimt, Degas, and Cézanne, which brighten otherwise drab warehouse buildings at the corner of Third and Sears. Within the past 20 years, K12 Gallery & TEJAS (Teen Education and Joint Adult Studio) artists, along with students and community volunteers, have joined forces to fuel an artistic revolution in a city, best known, upon first glance, for its engineering glories of the past.
