PechaKucha Presenters

What is a PechaKucha you ask?

PechaKucha is a simple presentation format of a set of 20 slide show images, each image advances automatically every 20 seconds as the presenter shares their work. We are thrilled to have 8 artists and designers who attended the College of Visual Arts in St. Paul, MN share a snapshot of their work since their CVA days!
