Were you in the audience when Bill T. Jones presented Fondly Do We Hope . . . Fervently Do We Pray, his expansive commissioned work on Abraham Lincoln at Ravinia two years ago? Then I'm guessing that, like me, you'll be especially interested in the documentary, Bill T. Jones: A Good Man, airing at 9 PM tonight on WTTW.

Directors Bob Hercules of Media Process Group and Gordon Quinn of Kartemquin Films spent two years following Jones through the protracted creative process for the piece, hoping to get some insight on the dicey business of making art. I found the work itself uneven, which could make this film all the more interesting. Ed Koziarski wrote about the Hercules/Quinn collaboration for the Bleader last year. And here's J.R. Jones' review.
