“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated”
A few nights ago I went to the opening of Luba Lukova’s solo show in New York. Luba’s powerful work is on display and shows incredible compassion for the subject matter, mainly social and political issues. Bravo Luba!
The show ends March 4
Last year at TED I had the great fortune of witnessing the following talk:
It’s about a South African puppet company which crafted puppets for the play War Horse. The two creators showed how the horse puppet evolved, and I was amazed at how realistic the horse looked. I recently went to see the actual play at the Lincoln Center in New York and I have to say that it was unbelievable. Absolute magic. Normally I’m not a big musical theater person but I would recommend this play just for the sheer artistry of the performance.
I’m very excited about an upcoming auction and gala hosted by Ed Burtynsky and Robert Kennedy Jr.
All proceeds will go to The Waterkeepers organization, one of my favourite charities. They are concerned with keeping water clean and free from contaminants, and they go after corporations that are major polluters.
These are my two donations, Ark 2 and Dirty Oceans.
