Do You See What I See? Our Daily Bread’s 30th Anniversary Celebration

Our Daily Bread
Our community is filled with people we see every day and yet we do not know their challenges or their stories. Art is a way to illustrate, illuminate and share our experiences through many different lenses. What do you think they see? What do you see?” Join us at “Do You See What I See” for a unique evening of wine, art and community in cooperation with Fairfax Spotlight on the Arts to celebrate Our Daily Bread’s 30 years of improving the lives of our Fairfax County area neighbors. View and purchase art work, enjoy performances, participate in a popular art contest. During the evening, artist Nathan Jalani Taylor will paint a picture of the event as it unfolds. We are honored to have Steve Rudin of ABC7/WJLA-TV and NewsChannel 8 as our emcee!
