Obsessed: The Art of Nerd-dom
January 11 - March 15
Reclaiming the once-pejorative term “nerd” to mean anyone who obsesses over created content, we’re taking a glimpse into the artistic side of nerd culture and our innate desire to expand upon the creative content we love. With artwork ranging from literary illustration to comics to game design, this exhibit celebrates the irrepressible creativity and playfulness of nerd culture in the Northwest. Hosted by PAFAC and NOLS Port Angeles Main Library and Co-curated by Sarah Jane & Ginny Holladay.
