The fourth season of Art 21 will be broadcast on PBS toward the end of this month, but there are numerous preview screenings happening all over the nation, and several locally in the next few weeks.
Here in Beacon, three of the segments will be screened.

HVCCA in Peekskill will be screening two episodes:
Saturday, October 6th, 2007@ 4:00pm Episode 2: Protest: Jenny Holzer, Alfredo Jaar, An-My Lê, and Nancy Spero
Saturday, October 13th, 2007 @ 4:00pm Episode 4: Paradox: Jennifer Allora & Guillermo Calzadilla, Mark Bradford, Robert Ryman, and Catherine Sullivan
These screenings are being organized in the interest of community access. With that in mind, I'm now wishing a screening would have been organized at the Howland Public Library as the potential to reach a traditionally non-art audience might be extended.
