Dayton Art Institute joins 'Museums for All' program and introduces new 'Art Connections' membership
The DAI is the first museum in Dayton to be part of this initiative; other participating Ohio museums include the Cincinnati Museum Center and the Akron Art Museum

DAYTON, OH.- As part of its ongoing efforts to make the museum accessible to all in the Dayton community, the Dayton Art Institute has joined the Museums for All program and announced the creation of Art Connections, a special discounted family membership available for anyone who receives SNAP benefits.

Museums for All is a signature access program of the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), administered by the Association of Children’s Museums (ACM), to encourage people of all backgrounds to visit museums regularly and build lifelong museum-going habits.

The program supports those receiving food assistance (SNAP) benefits by offering discounted admission at participating museums, for up to four people, with the presentation of a SNAP Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card. The DAI will offer a discounted admission rate of $3 per adult, with free admission for youth ages 17 and younger, when a SNAP EBT card is presented at the museum’s Guest Services Desk.

In conjunction with its participation in Museums for All, the DAI will also offer a special Art Connections Family Membership for anyone in the community who is currently receiving SNAP benefits. Art Connections offers a specially discounted family membership for only $10 per year.

Art Connections memberships may only be purchased at the DAI’s Guest Service Desk, during regular museum hours. A valid SNAP EBT card must be presented at the time of purchase to receive this membership discount.

“Participation in Museums for All is part of the Dayton Art Institute’s broad commitment to seek, include, and welcome all audiences,” said Michael Roediger, CEO and Director of the Dayton Art Institute. “As the museum celebrates its centennial and looks ahead to its next 100 years, it’s important that this community resource is accessible to all.”

The Museums for All program helps expand access to museums and also raise public awareness about how museums in the United States are reaching their entire communities. More than 250 institutions participate in the initiative, including art museums, children’s museums, science centers, botanical gardens, zoos, history museums, and more. Participating museums are located nationwide, representing more than 40 states.
