Dear Friends,

This has been a great year for Day Eight.

In January of 2012, the dance company premiered our new evening length work – Quis Custodiet. Quis (as I call it) explores the issue of security, and the work is ongoing. I’m humbled and grateful for everyone’s faith in the work, and by the effort bourgeon_cover_supportof the dancers, media team (Pasternak Media), and our administrative volunteers, including our interns.

Now, at the end of 2012, we are about to celebrate the publication of the Bourgeon book. The Bourgeon book includes fifty essays by fifty different artists and for those of us who believe in the arts, and study the arts, and appreciate the arts, the book is a thought-provoking and enjoyable window into the field, and the design, by Innosanto Nagaro and Design Action, is lovely.

I think of producing art, and making art, as a trust. Holding that trust is a commitment that I make to something beyond myself, but I can’t do it alone. We need your support to keep our programming going. Please join me in making an end of year donation to Day Eight. Any amount will help, and your contributions are tax deductible.

You can donate with your credit card right here, or mail a check to Day Eight at 1366 Sheridan Street NW, Washington DC 20011.



On behalf of the Board of Directors and all of the folks involved in our projects, thank you for your support!

Sincerely,

Robert Bettmann

P.s. – If you donate $100 dollars or more I’ll send you an autographed copy of the new book as a personalized thank you. It makes a great conversation piece, or gift for the artists in your life.
