Tonight we’ll be fundraising but I’ll also be talking to my friend, the artist, Viktor Koen about his TEDxTalk in Scarsdale on March 11, 2018.

March 1, 2018

Artist and Educator
Viktor Koen is an award-winning illustrator, educator, designer, and TED speaker whose artistic works are regularly featured in national and international books and publications from Rolling Stone to ESPN. Koen’s passion for art drives him to teach others about his motives and inspire people each and every day with his wild creations and compelling speeches.

From the TEDxScarsdale website

 

Viktor and I have been friends for 20+ years now and he never stops amazing me. If you follow him on Facebook you are treated, every few days, to a new piece of art that will grace the cover of some big circulation magazine or the front page of the NYTimes business section or some obscure publication that deals with brain chemistry. It’s always an adventure.

I will be the first to admit to some jealousy. TED is one of a growing number of places on the internet where you can communicate new and interesting ideas. One of the first blog entries I wrote for JUST MY EYES way back in 2009 was about TED. TED, as I said earlier, is now just one of many but it is also one of the earliest and most well-known and I’ve always wanted to do one.

REMEMBER: OUR PRIMARY GOAL TONIGHT IS TO RAISE FUNDS FOR HELLENIC PUBLIC RADIO/COSMOSfm so call right now and pledge 718-204-8900.

Please tune in tonight at 7pm to my radio program Graffiti to listen to my conversation with Viktor Koen and help out the fundraising campaign on Hellenic Public Radio/CosmosFM, WNYE, 91.5 fm. Or listen on-line at the CosmosFM website. Or use the TuneIn app on your smart device.
