Each new season, Art21 offers a limited number of grant awards to PBS stations for administering outreach efforts in conjunction with local broadcasts of the Art in the Twenty-First Century series. These mini-grants are a springboard for inspiring outreach that is truly collaborative, bringing together organizations and individuals at the local level to explore the vitality of contemporary art.
After a competitive application process, four PBS stations received a $3500 mini-grant to create action-based involvement encouraging wide audience viewership and community engagement around Season 4 of the Art:21‚ÄîArt in the Twenty-First Century series, premiering in Fall 2007. These stations and their initial plans for multi-part Season 4 programming are KPTS, Wichita, KS; Louisiana Public Broadcasting, Baton Rouge, LA; WDSE, Duluth, MN; and WXXI, Rochester, NY.
