Making Art

July 20th, 2010

If you missed this PBS series on contemporary American visual artists, as I did, you can view full episodes on the Art:21website. Each episode is built around a theme, such as Memory, Compassion, Fantasy, Transformation, Loss and Desire and so on. Watching the artists at work and hearing them talk about the way they work gives you an intimate look at the creative process. I loved the episodes featuring Susan Rothenburg (Memory) and Jenny Holzer (Protest) and the opportunity to discover artists new to me like Nancy Spero (how did I miss knowing her work?!). And I haven’t even scratched the surface of this series–I’m doling it out to myself as a treat.
