Enjoy an exclusive glimpse into Ken’s creative process and engage with us in a profound discussion about his dedication to sharing his nature-focused artistic vision with the world. He and Chris will explore how Ken’s art connects to the themes of "Orcas: Our Shared Future,” including the complexities of our vulnerable ocean ecosystems, orca culture and biology, and the deep and ongoing relationships between orcas and various Indigenous communities.
