Becci Crowe is an artist from Puyallup whose work will be shown at the Knutzen Family Theatre through April 6. From 2 to 4 p.m. Feb. 28, she will bring to life her experiences at a special presentation at the Knutzen Family Theatre in Federal Way. Her presentation will include a showing of her documentary “As Close As You Dare — Africa,” which can be seen on PBS, along with video and photos of her journeys.

“It will be very visual and interactive,” Crowe said. “I like to transport them to Africa, immerse them in the beauty, the danger, the humor.”
