Day Eight is excited be partnering again with Washington Project for the Arts to support seven local artists in creation of articles related to the upcoming exhibit, “Hothouse: imPRINT”. Day Eight founder Robert Bettmann served as juror to select the artists for the publication/exhibit which opens Thursday May 7, 2015 at the Capitol Skyline Hotel.

The project was made possible through a generous grant by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities to Robert Bettmann as an individual artist.
