STAMFORD, CT - Grace Cho, Founder and CEO of Orangenius (www.orangenius.com) will give a talk on “Civility in the Arts and Technology: Art as Global Ambassador” on November 28th at 6 p.m. at The Ferguson Library.

In the age of global discourse, the language of art can be a great unifier. Once limited to small, elite audiences, art is now being redefined by technology that brings it to the masses in a language that knows no borders or politics. Grace Cho will speak about how art and curiosity can provide new ways of examining how our country’s leaders tackle the pressing issues of today’s world.

Her appearance is part of a series on Civility in America sponsored by The Dilenschneider Group, Hearst Media Group in Connecticut and The Ferguson Library.

Skilled at taking conceptual initiatives and turning them into $100 million businesses, Grace developed Orangenius to assist independent, working artists in building their own creative empires. Orangenius is a tech platform that unites the entire community of artists and creatives.

Drawing on her more than 25 years in the financial services, media, entertainment and private equity industries, Grace transformed global business units at GE Capital, NBCU, and Nielsen and is doing the same for the business economy of the arts by providing the tools and resources artists and creatives need to thrive in the new creative economy.

An artist herself, Grace founded Orangenius on the premise that artists live in a fractured and disconnected society that makes it difficult for many artists to develop their art as a career. Orangenius aims to eliminate the concept of “starving artist.”

Robert L. Dilenschneider, founder and president of The Dilenschneider Group, who conceived the idea for the series, said, “Incivility has become socially acceptable and commonplace. The lack of civility in every segment of society, from politics to academia, from the media to the blogosphere, from talk radio to the pulpit, has become a crippling epidemic that threatens the future of our country. Something must be done.”
