Public Art

K12 Gallery/TEJAS is dedicated to the community of Dayton; its people and places are what fuel our creative ambition. Within the last 20 years, K12 has overseen the creation and installation of many pubic artworks in area. We work with local artists, community members, and organizations to complete these large scale public works of art. Our current partnership with the Montgomery County Juvenile Court Program, HAALO, encourages at risk teens to participate in the creation of artwork and to have a sense of pride in the rejuvenation their artwork brings to the urban landscape around them. From mosaic murals and metal sculpture on Fifth Street to 10 giant scale master replica murals installed on buildings on the corner of Sears and Third Streets, K12/TEJAS is continually developing new projects that will bring art into neighborhoods and streets of Dayton for years to come.
