June 13 / 16
Hello and good morning! The weekend came and went too fast, but it was a nice one. I’m taking a different approach with this month’s creative spotlight. I’m putting the focus on Art21.
Art21 is a PBS series, educational resource, archive, and history of contemporary art. It premiered in 2001, and is now broadcast in over 50 countries worldwide. Premiering a new season every two years, Art:21 is the only series on United States television to focus exclusively on contemporary visual art and artists. It is a nonprofit organization founded in 1997 to make contemporary art more accessible to the public, and to document 21st-century art and artists from the artists’ own perspectives. Their overall goal is to raise the profile of major players in the world of contemporary art and to encourage creativity.
From the PBS television series, public programs, outreach, education, even a blog, Art21 is bringing art in creative and new ways.
Here are a few videos from past seasons, including a preview for Season 8 premiering September 2016.
Enjoy the rest of your Monday, be blessed!
