Arts In Context is an arts documentary series exploring the process of creation through collaboration and the condition of living and working as an artist. By spotlighting visual arts, dance, music and culture, we hope to pique curiosity and inspire people to learn more about a subject, visit an exhibition, attend a performance or create and share something beautiful of their own and facilitate the dialogue between artists and audiences. Arts In Context airs Thursdays on KLRU-TV, Austin PBS, and is available everywhere on the PBS iPhone app and iPad app.
