"The objective of PechaKucha Night Hamptons is to acknowledge and celebrate the boundless creative talent in our community," noted series organizer Andrea Grover
, Curator of Special Projects at Parrish Art Museum
. "PechaKucha is an informative way to connect and socialize with the many artists, writers, actors, designers, chefs, and wide-ranging creative professionals."
On Friday, December 12th at 6 p.m., the Parrish Art Museum is presenting Vol. 10 of its popular PechaKucha Night Hamptons.

The theme of the evening will be living creatively on the East End.
