Better Than a Sitcom

TV aficionados will tell you that most shows hit their peak somewhere between season four and season seven and that it's only downhill from there. Of course, we're not sure this applies to ART 21, the PBS show that explores the contemporary art world through interviews with the world's most interesting working artists. As long as there is art, this show remains relevant, no laugh track necessary. For the season seven kick off, Susan Sollins – the show's executive director and curator is visiting a select number of American cities, including Dallas, where she collaborates with the Goss-Michael Foundation to screen the season premiere at Texas Theatre at 7 p.m. Thursday. See the first episode and stick around for a conversation between Sollins and KERA's Jeff Whittington afterward. Tickets are free, but you must RSVP to [email protected] Art 21 airs on KERA TV, channel 13 at 10 p.m. Tuesdays starting October 28. More information is available at gossmichaelfoundation.org.
