New Series

ARTS CHANNEL – Thursdays from 4 September, 8.00pm

Part documentary series, part road movie, this show takes a coast-to-coast road trip to capture the vastness of American Art and its creators. This is a series that will attract a young audience in its cool and stylish way of bringing art to them at home. Captured on HD, this series chronicles our vibrant hosts and crew as they travel across the United States in a customized Winnebago in search of the country’s great art treasures, roadside folk and ‘outsider’ art, spectacular architecture and the people making art today. Each episode of Artland: USA provides a varied portrait of the art of its subject region. Included are interviews with significant artists today, sites associated with major moments in art history and noteworthy public and private art collections. This series will discover art in America’s cities and towns by taking viewers on a three month odyssey to chronicle great living artists, public and private collections, architecture and offbeat ‘roadside art-tractions’ from California to Maine.
