Todd Crawford Death – Todd Crawford, a long-time volunteer and friend of the museum has passed away. Since 2016, Todd Crawford has been an active member of the DAI Associate Board, working in many positions such as the Chair of the Art Ball (2019) and the Co-Chair of the Oktoberfest (2023) before he was sadly pronounced dead. The almost eight years of dedication that Todd shown while serving on the museum’s Associate Board resulted in many hours of his work as well as gifts worth thousands of dollars.
Who was Todd Crawford?
Every significant event began and ended with Todd serving as a volunteer, and he was always the first one there and the last one to go. In 2019, Todd was a contributing factor in the selection of “Icon” as the theme for Art Ball, with the entirety of the structure acting as the artistic inspiration for the event. When I think of Todd Crawford, I can’t think of any other adjective to describe him. His ability to guide others, make people feel welcome, and simply be there at the DAI will be dearly missed; he was a true Icon in Dayton.
The Dayton Art Institute (DAI) is a visual arts museum that can be found in Dayton, which is located in the state of Ohio. The Dayton Art Institute is routinely placed among the top art museums in the United States, and this distinction has been maintained for many years.
This institution is ranked in the top 3 percent of all art museums in North America across three out of the four different categories. In 2007, the museum of art was visited by 303,834 individuals. 1919 marked the first year that the Dayton Museum of Fine Arts was available to the public; by 1930, it had moved into a brand-new building that had been constructed by Edward B. Green. The first museum was housed in a downtown mansion.
The Italian Renaissance garden stairs at the Villa d’Este, which is located close to Rome and Italy, as well as the Casino in the grounds of the Villa Farnese at Caprarola, were the primary sources of inspiration for the front hillside stairway of the DAI. I-75, which passes right through the middle of Dayton, contributes to the city’s exposure as well as its accessibility. Condolences are been sent to the Dayton Art Institute, family members and friends of Todd Crawford after he passed away.
