The Dayton Glass Day is Saturday. Learn more about various art glass processes from Dayton's own makers and hear remembrances of Dayton's first great studio glass artist, Tom Chapman. This is Saturday afternoon at the Dayton Art Institute.

Forlani, Director of the Center for the Integration of Faith and Work at the University of Dayton will explore the value, personal commitment, and meaning of your chosen life's work.
