When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.”~ Paul Coelho

"Some Mad Hope..."
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.

ART 21: Art in the 21st Century

For several seasons now, PBS (Public Broadcasting Service) has developed and hosted a quality program that highlights contemporary "master" visual artists.

It is called: Art:21 Art in the 21st Century.

For art educators like myself,this program is an invaluable and familiar resource. For me personally,as a fine artist, it is inspiring to witness emerging artists who are fully immersed in their craft and whose unique art production is evidence of their fearless passion to evolve,explore and manifest their "vision."

The featured working artists are dynamic and innovative in their thinking and creation processes. Their lives are inextricably connected to their art and to the world in which we live. Tim Hawkinson, Sally Mann, Kiki Smith ,Nancy Spero,Janine Antoni,Ursula von Rydingsvard,Jenny Holzer and Mark Bradford are among my favorites.I had the opportunity to meet Mark Bradford!
These artists are the "real deal!" This program offers a rich and accessible understanding of contemporary art and artists. Learn about and view art at it's finest!
