Daily Dose Pick: PBS Arts

PBS has always been the go-to TV channel for the arts, and now its PBS Arts website is providing an equally stellar cultural experience online.

Featuring curated web exhibitions, PBS Arts covers the realms of visual art, dance, theater, film, and music. Current exhibitions include a look at contemporary artists responding to themes in the news, a tour of New Orleans five years after Katrina with artist Thomas Mann, and an overview of the sounds of Brazilian Samba singer Seu Jorge.

Explore the PBS Arts website, watch full performances of Shakespeare plays, meet avant-garde filmmakers on Thirteen’s SundayArts, view slideshows of the best in visual arts from Art:21, and contribute your own creativity to the PBS mix.
