Michael Roediger is going on three years at the helm of one of the largest arts and cultural organizations in the Miami Valley — the Dayton Art Institute, which is looking forward in a few years to its 100th anniversary. We caught up with its director and CEO recently to talk about the ideas and thoughts he brings to the job, and to look at how the museum is changing, growing and planning for the future.
