It’s loot we’d like to share with you.

Each ‘morn we’ll tweet a little clue,
a blank that must be filled by you

By close-of-day we’ll judge the queue
and pick a winner (could be you!)
to send our Pirate booty to.

So peel your eyes and deign to view
the couplets we submit to you.
Then tweet into the ballyhoo.

The prizes will sail straight on through.

Good luck!

Dancing with DCDC: Capturing the Magic of a 45-Year-Young Dance Company

DCDC

“I think what’s smart about them is they’re bringing in choreographers, innovative choreographers, to keep the work alive – to keep art alive.”

- Ray Mercer, Master Dance Teacher

“45 years… it says a lot about the longevity of any arts organization, let alone a dance company… These prominent people are coming in and making world-class art right here in Dayton Ohio.”

- DeMarcus Akeem, Company Dancer

Collaboration. It’s the challenge of working towards the same goal with someone else, sharing a single vision between many people. It’s at the heart of what we do at Real Art, inside our walls and out. But sometimes a project comes along that redefines what a term like “collaboration” means. In this case, we had the privilege to learn from the Dayton Contemporary Dance Company.

Real Art Welcomes Sara Hinegardner

sarahinegardner

Real Art welcomes Sara Hinegardner as the newest addition to our team. She is an Interactive Design Intern working out of Real Art’s Dayton headquarters. With experience that ranges from old school illustration to coding websites, Sara feels most comfortable experimenting with different mediums and adapting to new challenges that come her way.

Hinegardner recently graduated valedictorian from the School of Advertising Art with an Associate Degree of Applied Business in Advertising Art and an acquired caffeine dependency.

Growing up, Sara wanted to be everything from a professional photographer to a nurse. With a passion for all things creative, and a fondness of discovering solutions to problems that plague the public, it was easy for her to fall in love with the field of graphic design. The variety of mediums that can be used to convey solid thoughts and concepts is really what drives her, and she likes the tangible details that can be executed and appreciated in a technology driven society.

As a Missouri native, Hinegardner has really come to appreciate all that Dayton has to offer. She is a baker, a poetry enthusiast, an avid movie watcher, a record collector, and she sings sometimes.
