Thanks to Marie Tully for her fourth installation of a PKN poster this year. You may have noticed a progression in her artwork, a highlighting of four different themes as we have progressed through the year: Listen, Learn, Grow and Inspire. For Vol. 32, we expect to hear a lot about inspiration … and we’ll be inspired ourselves in the process.
Admission is free but we encourage you to make a donation at the door. Ten bucks or so would be greatly appreciated.
Please let us know you're planning to go …
Thanks to our print partner, Print Shop by Vantage.
