"Meet contemporary artists at work and speaking in their own words- direct, accessible, and unfiltered ... This unique four-hour series spotlights 17 artists working in the United States today, and invites viewers behind the working in scenes to see artists at work in their homes, communities, and unexpected sites- from an old-growth forest to a military base to a film set. The artists, including painters, photographers, sculptors, and video artists, demonstrate the breadth of artistic practice across the country and explore questions that are both timeless and timely- about politics, mortality, love, nature, science, order, chaos, and more"--Container.
