Description: Come join your AFCEA friends for appetizers, drinks, and a private tour of the newest exhibit in Dayton! The Dayton Art Institute presents ┐Ralston Crawford: Air + Space + War┐ is stated by The Wall Street Journal to ┐be a splendid, informative exhibition.┐ American art transformed in the period 1940-55, and nowhere is that change better exemplified than in the work of Ralston Crawford (1906-1978). Crawford was influenced by aviation through personal experiences in flight, his exposure to the construction of airplanes and the destruction they wrought in WWII, and the atomic bomb tests at Bikini Atoll. These experiences had a profound impact on Crawford and marked a major turning point in his life and art. Ralston Crawford: Air + Space + War features 72 works, which include paintings, drawings, and photographs by the American artist. This exhibition is organized by the Vilcek Foundation, in collaboration with the Brandywine River Museum of Art and the Dayton Art Institute, which will be the only two venues to present this exhibition. **Please note that masks are required in the Dayton Art Institute galleries but are not required in our networking space.
