For more than 30 years, Michael Killen led Killen & Associates, Inc., a firm that published studies and short films to help banks and high tech companies identify and seize emerging business opportunities. He’ll share what he learned filming leaders who are invested in slowing the impact of greenhouse gas emissions on Sunday, Nov. 22, at 4:00 pm at St. Bede’s Church (2650 Sand Hill Road) in Menlo Park.
The program, part of Arts at St. Bede’s, is titled “Michael Killen — Art and Music: Engaging Climate Change” and includes three of his paintings. $10–$25 is suggested donation at the door.
Killen’s paintings draw inspiration from two iconic songwriters of our time: Stephen Sondheim and Mitch Leigh. “At this event we’ll be privileged to view three vibrant 6′ x 15′ canvasses: Gone with the Wind is the Electric Grid, Methane Joins Carbon Emissions to Boil the Planet (shown above) and Don Quixote Fights the Giant of Our Time,” said St. Bede’s Music Director, Katherine McKee “The audience will hear and enjoy the music, and listen to Killen speak, exploring his art, its relationship to the music and the bigger picture it addresses.”
Killen has exhibited his art before audiences and leaders from the Carnegie Institution for Science, NASA, Microsoft, Packard Foundation, Precourt Institute for Energy at Stanford, Smith Andersen Editions & Gallery, and the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment.
