STORYTELLERS highlights artists and approaches that use narrative to communicate personal stories and universal truths. PBS premiere December 11, 2020 (check local listings).

Featuring: sculptor George Rodriguez, whose oversized ceramic figures tell universal stories; the Art to Wear movement with gallerist and craft historian Julie Schafler Dale and textile artist Linda J. Mendelson, who draws inspiration from poetry and pushes the boundaries of wearable art; multimedia works by Nicholas Galanin, an artist of Tlingit and Unangax̂ ancestry, that critically explore society’s past and present; and Christina Bothwell, who explores themes of loss and hope through her unique approach to glass.
