“Art: 21” PBS documentary screenings/discussions on tap at ULM; next screening March 6
A Monroe art museum and international art fraternity will serve as co-hosts for screenings of Public Broadcasting Service art-themed documentaries, starting in February.
The screenings are free, open to the public and followed by discussion.
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 documentary series begins with the airing of "Romance", which explores the role of intuition, fantasy and escapism in contemporary art.
The event is produced in collaboration with Art21 Inc., a non-profit contemporary art organization serving artists, students, teachers and the general public worldwide.
The public screenings, which all begin at 6:30 p.m. in Room 100 of Stubbs Hall, are as follows:
