Wichita Art Chatter
The global rage of pechakucha shakes up WAM! Part open mike, part thought cocktail, part happy hour on a Friday night, join the crowd as caffeinated ideas and antics unfold. 20 slides for 20 seconds each--say what you mean, get to the point, and then sit down. WAM presents a lineup of local artists, musicians, and designers--creative types of every stripe--in streamlined offerings about what’s up and on their minds.
Start with a cocktail reception, and then strap in as punchy, art-savvy ideas unfold.
6 pm cash bar reception
6:45 pm thought cocktail
8 pm more chatter and mingling back at the bar
General admission $10 at the door and free admission for WAM members.
