Gov. Jerry Brown Asked for a New Approach to Climate Change, and Gets One

Michael Killen has responded to Jerry Brown with a new approach to climate change — the art exhibit Sustainable and Resilient California.  Soon the state will display the exhibit in its buildings, and it will also be displayed in San Francisco and Santa Clara County.

The Governor’s Office expressed an interest in Michael’s art, and Senator Jerry Hill, Chairman of the Environmental Quality Committee, saw the educational value of Sustainable and Resilient California and decided state buildings should display it. Two signature paintings of the exhibit are “Resilience” and “Sustainability.”

The City of Palo Alto, County of Santa Clara, Microsoft Corporation, NASA Ames, the Precourt Energy Efficiency Center at Stanford University, Save the Bay, and Sustainable Silicon Valley have all displayed the Menlo Park, CA, artist’s works, which address climate change and sustainability. Community leaders have acknowledged the contributions of Michael’s work to raising public awareness. Cole Wilbur, President of the California Wellness Foundation and trustee of the Lucile and David Packard Foundation, said, “Michael, through his art, provides people throughout California and the US an opportunity to learn and realize the importance of climate and energy initiatives.” Sid Espinosa, Director of Philanthropy and Corporate Citizenship at Microsoft and former mayor of Palo Alto, said, “Michael brings attention to the challenges and opportunities of our times.”

Sustainable and Resilient California will be on tour. The first three legs of the tour are Sacramento, San Francisco, and Santa Clara County. Michael is currently discussing sponsorship opportunities with companies that are helping California to become more sustainable and resilient — companies that are building high-performance buildings and the systems that support them. Parties interested in sponsoring the Sustainable and Resilient California exhibit on its tour should contact Michael directly.
