Although the Dayton Art Institute and its Museum Store remain closed due to efforts to minimize the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), the DAI’s online Museum Store remains open for business. More than 100 new products have recently been added to the online store, which features everything from items related to DAI exhibitions, art books and unique jewelry, to housewares, boredom busters for the kids and gift items for nearly every occasion. Newly added products include decorative items from Charley Harper Studio and Macone Clay, jewelry and apparel, fun gifts and activities for the kids, and a variety of art-related home décor items.
While many sites like Amazon are currently only shipping essential items, the DAI’s full online store is available for purchase, offering a variety of options for birthdays, weddings or other special events that you might not be able to attend in person right now. While the museum is closed, the online store is offering free shipping, as well as complimentary gift wrapping, for all orders.
Like other arts organizations and businesses around the country, the Dayton Art Institute is facing many financial challenges and uncertainties during this closure due to the pandemic crisis. The DAI needs the public’s support more than ever, and all purchases from the online Museum Store directly benefit the museum.
Here are a few of the featured new items:
