Killen paintings on display in Atherton

Works by Menlo Park artist Michael Killen, who says he uses his art to share messages on climate change, ocean change, energy and emissions, will be on display in Atherton's town offices and the library through January.

About 45 people recently heard Mr. Killen talk in the Atherton council chambers about the inspirations for his paintings, including the 6-by 15-foot work, "George Shultz's Energy/Climate Recommendation to the New President."

The Nov. 9 event was sponsored by the town and the Atherton Arts Foundation, a nonprofit formed in 2009 to acquire and display public art and to sponsor art shows, classes and other educational events.
