PBS Launches Arts Website | Bleader
comment

PBS has launched its new PBS Arts website. Described as an "online component of PBS’s multi-platform mission to bring the arts home to millions of Americans," the site will offer virtual exhibits, videos from PBS national and local programs, and interactive features. Timed to coincide with the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, the site's debut is anchored by Ruin and Recovery, a newly commissioned online-only exhibition from the producers of the PBS series Craft in America. Ruin and Recovery highlights New Orleans artist Thomas Mann and his Storm Cycle, a series of sculptural assemblages commemorating the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. The website kicks off what PBS describes as an effort "to reinvigorate public engagement with the arts through an exploration of performance, artistic expression and the creative process—on-air, online, in the classroom, and in every community."
