Explore those cities represented in the Fall Arts Festival with mini-documentaries from across the country. From Seattle to Miami, the Blue Ridge Mountains to Los Angeles, the United States brims with of arts and culture. In Miami, Haitian and Cuban artists lay down roots in neighborhoods through arts centers. San Francisco's quirky, rebellious arts scenes defines the larger renegade spirit of the area. Chicago's skyline itself is a work of art, designed by a roster of iconic architects. The beautiful and the bizarre, classical and contemporary, we celebrate the arts across America.
San Francisco is a haven for artists who are quirky, rebellious, and visionary. PBS member station KQED’s mini-documentary explores the renegade characteristic of Bay Area arts through an eclectic band of do-it-yourself artists mobilizing to help one of their own, whose warehouse – a combination artist hostel, performance space and community center – is imperiled. Along the way, we’re introduced to three artists – a painter, a fire sculptor, and a circus aerialist - who represent a San Francisco arts community that historically has focused more on artistic freedom than commercial reward.
