Wikipedia Description: Dayton Art Institute
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Dayton Art Institute (DAI) is a museum of fine arts in Dayton, Ohio, USA.
Founded in a downtown mansion in 1919 as the Dayton Museum of Fine Arts, the museum moved to its own building in 1930. Modeled after the Italian Renaissance Villa d'Este, near Rome, and the Villa Farnese at Caprarola, Italy, the new building overlooks downtown Dayton from across the Great Miami River.
The museum was later renamed The Dayton Art Institute as an indication of the growing importance of its school in addition to the museum. The nearly 60,000 square-foot building is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The museum's collection contains more than 20,000 objects spanning 5,000 years. In September, 2005, the Museum became one of eleven galleries in the US to host The Quest for Immortality: Treasures of Ancient Egypt, the largest collection of ancient artifacts ever to travel outside Egypt.

I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org

2007 photos: Equipment this year: I used the Fuji S9000 almost exclusively except for the period when it broke and I had to send it back for repairs. In August, I bought a Canon Rebel Xti, my first digital SLR (vs regular digital) which I tried as well but I wasn't that excited by it.
Trips this year: Two weeks down south (including Graceland, Shiloh, VIcksburg, and New Orleans), a week at a time share in Costa Rica over my 50th birthday, a week off for a family reunion in the Wisconsin Dells (with sidetrips to Dayton, Springfield, and Madison), a week in San Diego for the Comic-Con with a side trip to Michigan for two family reunions, a drive up to Niagara Falls, a couple of weekend jaunts including the Civil War Preservation Trust Grand Review in Vicksburg, and a December journey to three state capitols (Richmond, Raleigh, and Columbia). I saw sites in 18 states and 3 other countries this year -- the first year I'd been to more than two other countries since we lived in Venezuela when I was a little toddler.
Ego strokes: A photo that I took at the National Archives was used as the author photo on the book jacket for David A. Nichols' "A Matter of Justice: Eisenhower and the Beginning of the Civil Rights Revolution." I became a volunteer photographer at both Sixth and I Historic Synagogue and the Civil War Preservation Trust (later renamed "Civil War Trust")..
Number of photos taken this year: 225,000.
