Meet the most dynamic visual artists of our time in the award-winning documentary series Art in the Twenty-First Century. Unparalleled in its access to today's artists, this unique series invites viewers into artists' studios, homes and communities to provide an intimate view of their lives, creative processes, and sources of inspiration. The twenty-four one-hour programs present groundbreaking artists of the new century at work and speaking in their own words - direct, accessible, and unfiltered - about how, why and what they create. Compelling and thought-provoking, Art in the Twenty-First Century takes viewers behind the scenes - and beyond the museum or gallery experience - to reveal how contemporary art can change how we see the world around us.

VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
