Series Description: This series focuses on contemporary visual art and artists in the United States. Each episode profiles three to four artists. In short segments, featured artists speak directly to the audience in their own words, reflecting on their lives, sources of inspiration, and working processes. Profiled artists include painters, sculptors, printmakers, photographers, installation and video artists, as well as artists working with new media, environmental or public issues, and hybrid forms. Filmed in their studios, homes, and exhibition spaces, these artists demonstrate the full breadth of artistic practice across the country and reveal the depth of inter-generational and multicultural talent.
