Davenport, Iowa (April 23, 2013) – The Figge Art Museum will hold its third PechaKucha Night on Thursday, April 25th at 6:30pm in the museum lobby.

At PechaKucha Night, guests will hear a variety of entertaining talks, from RAGBRAI to wood carving, Junior Theatre to photography! This week's lineup includes: Dawn Wohlford-Metallo, Peter Small, Anna Pagnucci, Raelene Pullen, Ryan Collins, Megan Schoff, Patrick Reed, Martha Bonte, Bill Wohlford and Dan Sheridan.

Devised by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Klein Dytham architecture, the first PechaKucha Night was held in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network and show their work in public. Now, they are held in over 600 cities around the world by a city organizer. PechaKucha Nights are FREE, informal, and fun gatherings where creative people get together and share their ideas, works, thoughts, or hobbies in the PechaKucha 20x20 format. This format allows presenters to show 20 slides for 20 seconds each (six minutes and 40 seconds in total) to keep presentations concise and fast-paced. The images advance automatically and the presenter talks along to the images.

Museum admission is free on Thursday evenings and this event will include free light appetizers beginning at 5:30 p.m. along with a cash bar.
