City Arts


You could live in New York for years and not know all the places where culture and art flourish—like the opera company on the Bowery, the children’s museum on Staten Island and the sculpture garden in Long Island City. Each day, the city creates more choices: new shows on Broadway, new exhibitions in the Bronx, new jazz in Brooklyn. These riches are the focus of City Arts, a weekly magazine on the visual and performing arts. Covering the five boroughs, City Arts profiles New York’s foremost artists and institutions, and uncovers a wealth of less familiar treasures. In a breezy and inviting style supervised by executive producer Glenn DuBose and series producer Jeff Folmsbee, City Arts invites viewers to discover for themselves the extraordinary range of creativity in New York. Well over 150 arts organizations and hundreds of voices have been featured on this celebration of New York’s cultural heritage. For giving us an exhilarating glance at the creative arts in New York, and for providing a shining example of excellence in local television, a Peabody to Thirteen/WNET, New York for City Arts.
