TEDxSoleburySchool Speaker Kelly Sullivan
TEDxSoleburySchool Talk: Exercise Your Imagination
Kelly Sullivan is an "art crusader" who shares stories of tribulation and triumph in her efforts to inspire imagination and collaboration with groups around the world. Art is a universal language, and in an age of connectedness and segregation, she uses it to promote discovery over conflict, and beauty over battle. Take steps in whatever art form you choose to create a more happy life and a more peaceful planet.
Kelly Sullivan is a pioneer in the field of collaborative art. She has created commemorative paintings for some of the world’s largest corporations including Terex, Johnson & Johnson, and Pepsi. Over 100,000 people from around the world have put their fingers in paint to be part of Sullivan’s collaborative FingerSmear® work. Her newest form of collaborative art allows thousands of people to participate in one piece of art through a web-based application called Paint.Team™. Kelly is also an award-winning oil painter who speaks on the importance of art and imagination, and empowers adolescent girls across the globe through her Mighty Fingers Facing Change project.
