Dayton Live Puts “Spotlight on the Future”

Mike Colvin Fast Facts

Dayton Live has announced a $25M project to update and improve its venues. The campaign, called “Spotlight on the Future” would repair, update, and upgrade equipment at the Schuster Center, Victoria Theatre, and Metropolitan Arts Center, as well as the Arts Garage. Dayton Live presents more than 300 events annually, bringing in hundreds of thousands of guests from across Ohio. In a letter of support for the project, Dayton Mayor Jeffrey Mims, Jr., says the campaign would also be beneficial for the entire downtown community.

“Dayton Live also has significant economic impact on our downtown Dayton community. People travel from great distance to attend shows in their facilities,” said Mayor Mims. “They stay at our downtown hotels; they shop in our local stores, and they eat at our local restaurants. That impact cannot be overstated.”

The arts nonprofit hopes to partially fund the campaign with a $2.75M Dayton Regional Priority Development and Advocacy Committee (PDAC) request. According to the Dayton Business Journal, additional funding for the project is expected to come from previously committed and pending from various entities.
