Pecha Kucha Seattle and Bellevue Arts Museum are thrilled to co-present PKN SEA vol. 64: New Frontiers in Pacific Northwest Design in support of BAM’s exhibition The New Frontier: Young Designer-Makers in the Pacific Northwest. The event will present works by a wide-range of locally based designer-makers, examining the materials, processes, and creative strategies that define their practices. The evening will celebrate the depth, dimension and excellence of design in the Pacific Northwest, creating space for the discussion of how objects and products are conceived and created here, who is making them and how the field of local design is reflective of this unique region.
