Announcing Art21 Access ’09


Sign up for Art21’s Access ‘09 – an international screening initiative that will present your audiences with a sneak preview of a Season 5 of Art:21-Art in the 21st Century before the premiere on PBS. Art Access ’09 provides communities with resources, free of cost, to host their own public screening events, allowing audiences to explore the creative processes and ideas behind some of today’s most thought-provoking  artists.

Art21 Access ’09 depends on people’s enthusiasm to make contemporary art accessible and relevant to their own community, so we want you to organize your own preview event around the Peabody-Award winning Art:21 series. Consider this season’s artists and themes and host an event at your local museum, library, university, community-based organization, art space, or even coffee shop. Whether you plan a conversation with local artists, a panel discussion, a community-based art project, or just a screening-party, join Access ’09 to broaden and inspire a diverse exchange of ideas and perspectives. All participants will receive:

·    Preview DVD screener
·    Educator Guides
·    Postcards
·    Posters
·    Customizable press release
·    Embeddable trailer of each Season 5 episode
·    Press images
·    Digital logos for web sites
