>> Daytonian of the Week Aimee Noel writes poetry to reveal
The show will be split into two parts, with the first being dedicated to the art and poetry exhibit and the latter portion, beginning at 9 p.m., that will feature a musical performance by Novena, a folk rock band from Dayton, and a fire dancing performance by Jess Fecke.
>> This Dayton-born designer’s stay-at-home fashions are perfect for these times
Information on how to purchase artwork and to support these artists during this trying time will be discussed during the event. The performing artists will maintain proper social distancing guidelines throughout the live event. Performance acts will be filmed live at Patterson Homestead on Brown Street in Dayton.
