Art:21@ Museums + Libraries encourages collaboration between local cultural
institutions. Exploring contemporary art from visual and literary
perspectives, the initiative focuses on specific thematic episodes from the
the PBS series, "Art:21čArt in the Twenty-First Century." Local museums and
libraries will partner to host screening events, discussion forums, and
hands-on activities. Events are tailored for adult, family, and youth
audiences, and encourage an interdisciplinary approach to navigating the art
of today.

Art21 is a non-profit contemporary art organization serving students,
teachers, and the general public nationwide. In addition to producing the
Emmy-nominated, nationally broadcast PBS series, "Art:21čArt in the
Twenty-First Century," Art21 also offers a comprehensive Web site
(www.pbs.org/art21), educational materials, and outreach programs. Art21 has
produced three seasons of "Art:21čArt in the Twenty-First Century" for PBS
(Fall 2001, 2003, 2005), creating a biennial event that has featured 55
established and emerging artists to date. Season 4 will premiere in Fall
