Part documentary series, part road movie, Artland USA takes a coast-to-coast road trip to capture the vastness of American art and its creators.

Artland USA’s two vibrant hosts, Charles Luxton and Mame McCuthchin, tour the United States in a customised Winnebago in search of the country’s great art treasures.

Each episode of Artland USA provides a varied portrait of the art of its subject region, which includes interviews with significant artists, sites associated with major moments in art history, and noteworthy public and private art collections. From renowned museums to strange roadside attractions, this series is both a treat for art-lovers of every stripe and a whole new way to look at the USA.

McCuthchin admits she had a ball working on the series. “I love it. I hope there is an ‘Artland two’, an ‘Artland Asia’, ‘Artland Africa’, ‘Artland Europe’. I got to interview John Chamberlain, and Robert Indiana, and I think I’m going to have a moment where it hits me like a ton of bricks: ‘Oh my God, I can’t believe I was in the presence of those legends’. You know like sitting in their homes, eating their food, and chatting with them. John Chamberlain was a challenge though, at one point he said, ‘How’d you get this job? You ask horrible questions.'”
