In our PechaKucha presentation of the week, Bill Stelling (at PKN Tokyo Vol. 97) spins us some historical thread on the legendary “Fun Gallery” he co-founded in the 1980s. This famous New York graffiti gallery hosted the works of preeminent artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring while in their prime. Whether you’ve always wanted to know about this mythic art space or know nothing about it, this presentation is worth a look.

As usually happens in December, the PechaKucha Night community slows down as the holidays approach — see what events are happening this week though on our calendar — and additions to our Tumblr poster blog have been few and far between, but there are still some December posters and flyers getting made, like the one pictured above (for yesterday’s PKN Fresno Vol. 18).

We do have some very big things happening behind the scenes, which we can’t wait to share. More on everything next week (or sooner, if you visit our site).
