NEXT EVENT VOL 12
The theme for this PechaKucha Night is “Art is for Everyone.” Is “art” only for the so-called rich and famous? Who gets excluded from making, owning, and experiencing art? Who gets to say what is and is not “art”? To say “art is for everyone” is to project a hopeful vision.
This Pecha Kucha Night is brought to you by a partnership between the Museum of Culture and Environment at Central Washington Univeristy and Gallery One Visual Arts Center.
Doors open 6:30pm. First presenter starts 7pm.
Free Admission. Cash Bar.

As a board member of Gallery One Visual Arts Center, I am thrilled to be an organizer for our Pecha Kucha events!
