“Art: 21” PBS documentary screenings/discussions on tap at ULM; final screening April 24
A Monroe art museum and international art fraternity will serve as co-hosts for screenings of Public Broadcasting Service art-themed documentaries.
The screenings are free, open to the public and followed by discussion.
The final public screening for Art: 21 is "Paradox," which explores how contemporary artists address contradiction, ambiguity and truth, will be Friday, April 24 at 6:30 p.m. in Stubbs Hall, Room 100.
The Kappa Pi Delta Alpha International Honorary Art Fraternity and the Masur Museum of Art are co-hosts of the event.
The PBS documentary series, Art: 21, centers on contemporary artists who demonstrate the breadth of artistic practice in the United States. Each one-hour program is loosely organized around a theme, which helps audiences analyze, compare and juxtapose the artists’ profiles.
The event is produced in collaboration with Art21 Inc., a non-profit contemporary art organization serving artists, students, teachers and the general public worldwide.
