TEDxMileHigh - Adam Lerner - The Art of Risk

What do Andy Warhol and artificial lighting have in common? Nothing? Something profound? The outcome doesn't necessarily matter—what matters is that the question is being asked. Adam Lerner doesn't shy away from the ridiculous. At TEDxMileHigh, Adam tells his hilarious story of how he went from seeking a higher plane of thinking through more than a decade in higher education to discarding "status" and becoming one of America's most celebrated museum directors. For Adam, the risk is not in failure or criticism, but in not taking the chance to begin with. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
