Everyone loves trivia, and when you bring one of Dayton’s most beloved celebrities into host, you are sure to have a hoot. The Dayton Art Institute is hosting a very special night of trivia on Friday July, 13th, which includes the current Yousuf Karsh: American Portraits exhibit. “This is a fun way to get people into the museum to see this astounding set of photographs.” says DAI board member, Joshua Stucky. “It has been getting rave reviews.”
And speaking of rave reviews, enter the hostess, Dana Sintell, Dayton’s enduring drag hostess and comedienne. “This is right up my alley!” says Ms. Sintell, a 34 year veteran of the Dayton Drag culture. “My whole life has been trivial….and I would imagine I have lived through some of these historical events being asked about.”
Sintell, best known as the hostess and voice of the RubiGirls, couldn’t believe her luck in being asked. “I think the Museum knows a living work of art when they see one! The Venus Di Milo and I were good friends for God’s sake!”
The trivia night will be a full one. The Karsh exhibit will open to ticket holders at 6:30pm, followed by trivia in the Leo Bistro at 7:30pm. The event concludes at 9:00pm. Delicious food will be provided by Fusian with a cash bar available.
Sintell promises to keep things light and fun. “Trivia is supposed to be exciting and entertaining. I know some of the staff at the DAI and I bet you anything they have been looking long and hard for some great questions. This is going to be a real challenge!!” When asked about whether she will give a performance that night, Sintell quipped, “Ummm, have you met me?”
The event costs $10 for DAI members and $20 for non-members.
