Hulu now has 16 episodes of the PBS series ART 21. If you haven't seen or heard of it check this out from their description, "...the only series on television to focus exclusively on contemporary visual art and artists in the United States, ... Fascinating and intimate footage allows the viewer to observe the artists at work, watch their process as they transform inspiration into art, and hear their thoughts as they grapple with the physical and visual challenges of achieving their artistic visions."
One of my favorite artists featured is Cai Guo-Qiang in episode one of season 3 Power-see below. He is the first artist in this episode, some of you may recognize some of his work I've linked to before like this.
Art 21 also has there own blog here. Now go forth and be enlightened.
