After the success of their first Lightning Round last fall, Southampton's Parrish Art Museum has announced the dates and participants for the second and third installments of the program.
Lighting Round 2 will take place March 29th and will feature poet Scott Chaskey, puppeteer Liz Joyce, artist Sabina Streeter, Almond chef Jason Weiner, and artist Almond Zigmund, among others. Although no speakers have been announced for Lighting Round 3, it's been scheduled for May 17th. Both events begin at 6:30pm.
For those unfamiliar with the concept, the evening consists "of rapid-pace presentations by twelve members of the creative community. Each invited presenter will have six minutes and twenty slides that will advance automatically every twenty seconds." To get a better idea of what goes down at the event, check out the video from the first Lightning Round embedded above. It features Edible East End's Brian Halweil and Lindsay Morris' visual essay on farming and food culture on the East End.
