City Focus: Ellensburg

This week's City Focus brings us to Ellensburg located in central Washington. Ellensburg was founded in the late 19th century, and many of the buildings, such as the Historic Davidson Building, from that time still make for a rustic scene downtown. Given such charming flare Ellensburg has even developed its own language, in order to properly describe the various personalities of Ellensburg. Words such as adventuriest, to provide never-ending adventure. Let’s start off one the best Pechakucha-iest year in Ellensburg with the event on January 28. See everyone there!

As a board member of Gallery One Visual Arts Center, I am thrilled to be an organizer for our Pecha Kucha events!
