The Modern College of Design’s students, faculty, and staff used their creative talents to bring holiday cheer to Dayton businesses through the Downtown Dayton Partnership’s Whimsical Windows decorating contest. Businesses were given the option to decorate their own storefronts or have The Modern adopt their windowfront. Adopted windows provided students and business owners with the chance to meet and discuss a holiday theme for their display. Students shared their creativity through drawing, painting, or crafting on each unique display. Led by Senior Director of Student Success Melissa Kulp, The Modern partnered with 15 companies to decorate their storefronts’ windows for this annual contest that encourages families to support Downtown businesses during the holiday season.
