‘Nerd-dom’ to get spotlight at Port Angeles Library

To reclaim the once pejorative term “nerd” to mean anyone who obsesses over created content, the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center and North Olympic Library System are hosting opening festivities for “Obsessed: The Art of Nerd-dom” on Saturday, Jan. 11.

Festivities kick off with a VIP members event from 4-5 p.m. and a public reception from 5-7 p.m., both at the fine arts center, 1203 E. Lauridsen Blvd. An Art Blast! follows from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Port Angeles Library, 2210 S. Peabody St. Tomo Nakayama, a multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter from Seattle, will begin performing at 7 p.m.

“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,” event organizers say.
