CAA gets creative
More than 400 people attended a panel discussion titled “Unlocking Creativity” with actor Brian Dennehy ’60CC, author Asali Solomon ’95BC, composer Tom Kitt ’96CC, and novelist Kiran Desai ’99SOA at Lincoln Center on October 15. The event was part of the Sixth Annual Columbia Alumni Association Leaders Assembly and was moderated by President Lee C. Bollinger ’71LAW.
True inspiration, Solomon told the audience, takes many forms. “I think of creativity as anything that makes everyday life more beautiful,” she said. “Tend your garden, cook, put together an awesome outfit. Write your novel, too. There are so many different ways to be creative. Cure cancer. That’s creative.”
