About PBS Arts

PBS Arts aims to spark a resurgence of the arts in the United States, helping to make all Americans more aware that the arts are accessible to everyone and ensuring that all Americans understand that the arts are not only for them but also about them. PBS believes the arts enrich the human spirit, create vibrant and healthy communities and should be available to everyone — regardless of their circumstances — to experience and enjoy. 



The PBS Arts website brings audiences directly into the creative process, fosters individual artistic expression and promotes experimentation and exploration. By presenting a broad and diverse range of artistic genres, PBS Arts will reach new audiences by making the arts accessible to everyone, regardless of their geographic location.
