Interior/Exterior Naming Opportunities

You can leave a lasting legacy and join the evolution by pledging your support. Individuals, families, businesses, and corporations can name various features of our new space in their names or in honor of someone special in their lives. Each opportunity will afford donors or those they choose to recognize, with and engraved commemorative plaque, prominent recognition for years to come as a visible part of The Contemporary Dayton.


Exterior Steel Statement Columns (2) | $36,000

Custom Reclaimed Ash Reception Desk-Sculpture | $30,000 SEE CUSTOM DESK
In a space that celebrates art, our permanent fixtures must combine form and function. Our interior design includes custom furniture pieces, works of art in themselves. This custom reception desk by artist Shon Walters draws the public in while serving as the command post for our space. Walters will be using Ash Trees that were fallen at Sinclair Park during the 2019 Dayton tornados.

Flex-Space Office Hub | $25,000
This is where the work gets done. From planning our exhibition schedule to hosting curatorial teams, this 600/sf open office and meeting space, designed by longtime corporate partner, the minority-owned design firm, Elements IV Interiors, the Office Hub is where people connect and programs are created.

Arrival Vestibules/Exterior Fourth Street & Interior Rotunda Doors | $15,000
The clean, three-dimensional arrival vestibules provide an introduction and first impression for our organization, welcoming visitors. The interior entrance greets those strolling in from the historic Arcade Rotunda. The exterior entrance welcomes visitors from 4th Street.

Curator’s Workshop | $10,000
For those who love and do art, this key area, where art is loaded and exhibitions are stored and assembled before meeting their public, is critical, if oft-forgotten, space.

Rotunda-facing Video Display | $5,000

Art & Book Store Digital Sale System | $2,500

Parsons-style Gallery Seating | $1,000
These six, custom, modernist benches (distinguished by their legs and top edges being simply and elegantly equal in thickness), will be placed throughout our galleries offering respite for contemplation and conversation.

Art & Book Store Custom Ash Shelf | $500

New, Custom Art Easels & Chargeable Cordless Lights | $250

Art & Book Shop Tote | $100

*Gifts and pledges can be spread over 4 years. All donors of $1,000 and above will be listed on our prominently displayed permanent donor wall. Please contact The Contemporary Dayton for more information at 937.224.3822.
