Earlier this month I was in Davos, Switzerland for the 2012 Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum, where I was invited to have an exhibition of artworks in the main corridor of the Congress Center. During the conference, I gave a solo session entitled Art & Everyday Creativity: Rebuilding the Link, was a panelist in a session entitled Artwork through the Network moderated by Loic Lemeur on the following day, and participated in the lively Cultural Leaders dinner. Also scheduled on the program was an interactive “Art Walk” where I walked a group through my exhibit.
