The third season of Beyond the Canvas premieres tonight at 10:30 p.m. ET. Watch live in the player above.
In the Season 3 premiere of Beyond the Canvas, we profile five creators who prove that art isn’t just on a stage, screen, or page. Each sees the potential of art where the average person cannot, and their creative vision, in turn, allows us all to see the world in a different way. Hosted by PBS NewsHour Chief Correspondent Amna Nawaz, Beyond the Canvas revisits past NewsHour Canvas Arts and Culture segments.
This episode, “Art: All Around Us”, highlights creators, from muralists to museum curators. First, we hear from Shawn Dunwoody, who creates street art in his hometown of Rochester, New York.
Watch the full Beyond the Canvas series.
Plus, we chat with Andy Yoder, the concept artist behind the “Overboard” exhibit. To portray “The Great Shoe Spill of 1990”, he converted trash and trash and trash into replica Nike shoes. His work addresses the themes of consumption and the climate.
We also hear from Joana Andrade, big wave surfer and subject of the “Big vs. Small” documentary. Despite her talent, Andrade remains overlooked in her male-dominated sport.
Next, we speak with Dom Mullins and the all-black mountaineering team called Full Circle Everest. This spring, the team is looking to be the first all-black group to summit Mount Everest.
Finally, we meet the curators of the exhibition “¡Pleibo!l: In the Barrios and the big leagues”. The exhibit at the Smithsonian Museum of American History in Washington tells the story of the Latino pioneers of baseball, who made countless contributions to the sport.
