This series is terrific for serious research, or for the more casual viewer who is interested in contemporary art. It's a great way to discover new artists and catch up on the contemporary art world. One "warning" though, you can see this series for free online, just google it. Or if you are a Netflix subscriber, you can stream it.

If you love Art , but have problems loving contemporary art this is a good series to see. Love Richard Serra. His sculptures are so interactive.

Ever since I first saw this series on PBS I was hooked. I love seeing the various artists and learning abut their processes and work and relating what I'm doing to what they're doing. It is really cool to see such a variety of people and their work. I purchased all of the seasons on streaming...

It is rare to be able to see such in depth interviews with some of today's more accomplished artists. I love this series and the books that go along with it.

this series provides an interesting look at artist's, their work, their techniques, and their thoughts about their process- and does so in a engaging format- sometimes with long-ish interviews, sometimes with a lot of 'watching over the shoulder' of the artists at work, and so on- all depending on the type of work and the character of the artist. I personally found that watching the process was the most fun.

my other observation is that i often found the artist's work pretty mediocre when their thoughts/technique were pretty cool- and the opposite as well. the art that was the most interesting to see was done by artists that did not have a lot to say about it. I guess that says something about the nature of art?

I enjoyed watching the series- but not all parts of the episodes (and not all seasons) were of equal quality. i found season 6 fantastic, season 1 very good, and season 3 didn't seem very engaging at all...
