The work completed at Spire Arts is shown at several places in the community, including at Brookville's McGregor Surmount Corporation.

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The Montgomery County Board of Developmental Disabilities Services has a vocational arts program called “Spire Arts.”

It supports adults with developmental disabilities who want to pursue careers in art. They get studio space and support, as well as help marketing, and selling their artwork

“We are serving a population that is often underserved, and their participation in our program is a way for them to have a sense of identity,” said Christina Gluck, the art coordinator.

Their work is shown at several places in the community, including at Brookville’s McGregor Surmount Corporation. That company just bought several pieces for their offices.
