The rapid-fire exhibition of art, design, and general creativity, Pecha Kucha (usually pronounced 'pe-chak-cha' or something like that) is back in C-U. Saturday, Jan. 30 at the Canopy Club from 8:20pm to 11pm. Originally created by two architects to show off the work of young designers, the show consists of a fast-paced slideshow of twenty slides at twenty seconds per slide.

This is the second such show in C-U, the first being in September and featuring presenters such as a quilt artist, a computer graphics artist, and a presentation by a man who was married in a Taco Bell. The show this Saturday will include:

  • hiStories, or crazy stories from history from Amy Lin and Eric Shine
  • A project to create a photographic periodic table of the elements by Theodore Gray and Nick Mann
  • Book art with Spineless Books

Plus a lot more. The last show was entertaining and incredibly packed. Doors are at 7pm, and tickets are $7 at the door or $5 in advance.

(ED. NOTE:)

And because Smile Politely is an official sponsor of the night, we're offering 5 FREE pairs of tickets to the presentations. Can't get much better than that.

The first 5 people who respond to this contest with the subject "Pecha Kucha Tickets" will be granted free admission for them and a guest. Please send all submissions to:
