The Art Assignment

We recently looked at the educational YouTube channel Crash Course. Best-selling author and vlogger John Green doesn’t just team up with his brother to produce fun and educational YouTube channels. He is also working with his wife Sarah Green, former curator of contemporary art for the Indianapolis Museum of Art, to produce and co-host a PBS Digital Studios webseries called The Art Assignment. Sarah travels around the country and talks with artists about how they create their work. The artist demonstrates an art piece or performance and then viewers are asked to complete the same assignment. You can watch demonstrations like “Walk on It” with artist Kate Gilmore, or “Find Your Band—Bang on a Can” with experimental musicians Mark Stewart and Julia Wolfe. In this video, Chicago artist Deb Sokolow places an object in a public spot and then observes what happens with the object.
