MUNCIE, Ind.—The creative endeavors of the community this fall season will be featured and celebrated on Friday, Oct. 28, from 6 – 9 p.m. at the David Owsley Museum of Art on Ball State University’s campus. Emcee Braydee Euliss and guest emcee Faith Kellermeyer will introduce a variety of Pecha Kucha speed talks that will accompany a reception featuring “poetry on demand,” sketch portraits, music, a cash bar, hors d’oeuvres, late hours for special exhibition viewing, and more. Admission is always free and there is no RSVP required.
If you are unfamiliar with the Pecha Kucha format, presenters for this portion of the event will show 20 images for 20 seconds each. The images advance automatically and the presenters talk along with the images. Each presentation lasts only 6 minutes, 40 seconds. These events lend themselves to an informal and creative atmosphere where community members may share their ideas, reflections, and passion projects in a collaborative and friendly environment.
