This summer Day Eight will publish a book of poetry and launch a local history project in partnership with the American University Art Museum.
Help us match the grants provided to start those project at a house party in DC’s Crestwood neighborhood Saturday May 20th. At the event you’ll be able to meet a bunch of the folks involved with those projects, and in addition, the following honored guests will be attending in support:
Brandon Todd, Ward 4 DC Councilmember
Joy Austin, Executive Director of DC Humanities Council
Ebone Bell, Publisher of Tagg Magazine
Matt Wood, Policy Director of Free Press
Jon West-Bey, Board Chair of American Poetry Museum
John Chambers, Founder of Bloombars
John Mason, Board Chair of Washington Area Lawyers for the Arts
It’ll be a fun chance to get into some great conversations at a gorgeous private home. Get your tickets here.
Thanks to Mr. John Mahshie and Mr. Michael Faubion for hosting us.
Mahshie is senior vice president with TTR Sotheby’s International Realty and is Chairman of the Education Committee of the Washington Mid Atlantic Chapter of the Institute of Classical Architecture and Art.
A native of Texas, S. Michael Faubion spent 35 years at the National Endowment for the Arts, holding several positions in the Visual Arts Program. Following retirement from his first career, in 2012, he joined his partner, John T. Mahshie, at TTR Sotheby’s International Realty.
