Paula Kirkeby, owner of Smith Andersen Gallery, in Palo Alto says, “I was in my teens when I first encountered Harry Cohen’s paintings. They had the feeling of De Kooning. The work has evolved into a spirited and emotional life of its own. A Cohen hangs in my private office.”

Patricia Watts, Author of Harry Cohen: Painting from the Outside In, independent curator, consulting curator for the Marin Community Foundation and former chief curator at the Sonoma, says, “Harry Cohen is a gifted painter who is a master at constructing and organizing space using color; an important artist of the North Bay postwar artistic community.” 

Odis Schmidt, artist and co-producer of the annual ART MIX in Mendocino, CA says, “Collectors come from afar to our event and take home a Cohen. I own few Cohens”

Michael Killen, who has discussed art and artists on TV with Nathan Oliveira, Francis Mill, Hacket Mill Gallery; Elliot Eisner, professor of Art and Education at the Stanford Graduate School; Ruth Water, Founder and Director, and Burlingame Museum of Art, and other leaders, says, “I own over 10 Cohen paintings that bring great joy to my life.”

Global Warming Narrative “Act Now to Save the Environment and Planet for Grandchildren” Won’t Work

Michael  Killen first made the above comment at the Arts at St. Bede’s event ‘Michael Killen – Art and Music: Engaging Climate Change,  December 22, 2015.   He added ,”Not enough people will do something now to obtain a reward in the future.”

Michael is making  a film about the discovery of that narrative and the  foundations and corporations that helped him refine it and bring it to the marketplace. The film is Tilting at Windmills.   It helps people think differently about global warming and to add their voice to the new narrative.

Don Quixote Fights Global Warming

Michael especially wants large foundations that have invested in multiple greenhouse emissions, climate change,  and ocean change solution projects that need those projects  to provide a greater yield, sooner than later,  to contact him. The same is for corporations that have invested in global warming solutions and need the market to become more receptive ASAP.

Please start by using michael@killen.com to reach Michael.

This filmmaker  may help you make your projects, products and services more of a success sooner than later.
