Access Sacramento TV/Radio and Stanford U. Are Displaying Art From Michael Killen’s ‘Art of CA’s Climate Plan.’

Access Sacramento (CA) TV/Radio is displaying a large print of Michael Killen’s painting “Sustainability” (5Ft X 24Ft ) (1.5M X 6.3M). He made the art for NASA.

Stanford University is displaying a large print of Michael’s painting “Resilience of America,” the same size as painting listed above. Michael made “Resilience of America,” shortly after he made “Sustainability.”

Both paintings are part of Michael’s ‘CA’s Climate Plan’ collection of 12 significant works that help bring attention to the need for the climate plan, and that helps people understand and support it.

Those paintings will be in the October/November 2018 Exhibition: “Art of Michael Killen: Addressing Climate Change,” in San Francisco.

Michael recently removed three of his works that Governor Brown’s Office of Planning and Research had been displaying for two years. (The State has offered Michael eight additional buildings to showcase his work.)

The overall project has a mission of providing another approach to help decision-makers aline their actions with those of the state’ s plan. That approach is a symbolic presentation of information approach.

Michael also said, “He has already painted eight of the twelve paintings that are part of the project.   They include two of the six goals, five paintings on why we need the state’s plan, and three on the state’s strategies.”
