Michael Killen is the California artist who is making the painting that will forecast what he believes will be the most important new elements of the next President’s national energy policy. He plans to display the painting before the November 2016 elections.
His speech, “What I Learned Making Art that Helps Scientists and Political Leaders Share Their Important Message and Where I Go From Here,” will outline his ideas.
Killen is the artist who made “Sustainability,” at the request of NASA, and “Resilience of America.” Both of those paintings have been displayed by organizations that include the US Dept. of Commerce and Silicon Valley Energy Summit at Stanford. The California Governor’s Office of Planning and Research displays large prints of those paintings. His most recent paintings are “Energy and Emissions” and “Gone with the Wind Is the Electric Grid.” The paintings are 6 x 15 ft.
As part of his speech and Q/A session, Killen will share what inspires him to make message paintings. He’ll answer questions about the next message he plans to share and present a new view of important developments of our time.
Admission is free and all are welcome.
