Here are four arts and culture videos from public media partners around the nation.

From NPR: “OK Go: A Tiny Desk Concert In 223 Takes”:
“We needed to figure out the best possible way to move NPR Music’s Tiny Desk from our old headquarters to our new facility just north of the U.S. Capitol. So we had OK Go perform “All Is Not Lost” hundreds of times, as we transported the Tiny Desk from one home to the other.”

From the new Alaska Public Media series Indie Alaska: “I Am An Ice Diver”:
“Bill Streever is an author, biologist and avid adventurer. He is also a life-long diver. In this edition of INDIE ALASKA we follow the intrepid diver under the ice of Summit Lake, in the heart of the Chugach National Forest, for a view that few Alaskans ever see. INDIE ALASKA is an original video series produced by Alaska Public Media in partnership with PBS Digital Studios.”

Watch I Am An Ice Diver on PBS. See more from Indie Alaska.

A new season of documentaries is coming to POV starting June 24. Here’s a preview of one:
“Herman Wallace has spent more than 40 years in a 6′ x 9′ prison cell. He works with artist Jackie Sumell to imagine his ‘dream home,’ questioning justice and punishment in America.”

Watch Herman’s House – Trailer on PBS. See more from POV.

NYC-ARTS visits the New-York Historical Society for a tour of the Audubon Collection. “The museum is the permanent home to all 474 of his watercolors related to artist John James Audubon’s work, ‘The Birds of America.’ The New-York Historical Society will unveil their collection in the continuing exhibition ‘Audubon’s Aviary: The Complete Flock’ through 2015.”
