About the speaker
Jeff Koterba’s world is filled with decibels. From a deafening crack of thunder when he was hit by lightning, to an earthshaking rumble as the space shuttle carried his drawings into orbit. He’s a guitarist with an amplifier sometimes set to eleven, and a political cartoonist who, each day, has to cut through the noise with pen and ink.
And yet? It’s the quiet that inspires Jeff.
Come find out how acts of silence can overcome some of our loudest creative challenges.
Jeff Koterba is an award-winning creative.
Honored by the National Cartoonists Society, National Headliner Awards, and Great Plains Journalism Awards, his cartoons are syndicated to 850 newspapers and have appeared in such publications as The New York Times, The Washington Post, and USA Today.
His cartoons have flown aboard space shuttle Discovery; on earth, his work has been included in multiple exhibits in the U.S. and Europe, including alongside Picasso and Banksy.
Entertainment Weekly called his memoir, Inklings: “…a powerful and moving portrait of an artist.”

With over 50 artist studios to explore, this is the place for ideas, dreams and ‘what ifs’ to be shared. We are a living museum, a journey, where all things are still possible. This is the place where you can learn directly from creative professionals about the process of art and see their finished work. We are a place where you can touch, try, create and make a mess.
