    America Reframed [#501] A New Color: The Art of Being Edythe Boone Long before Black Lives Matter became a rallying cry, Edythe Boone embodied that truth as an activist, an educator, a great-grandmother, and foremost an artist. When a deeply personal tragedy ignites a national outcry, everything that Edy has worked so tirelessly for comes into question. From humble Harlem beginnings herself, the indefatigable "Edy" has for decades introduced underserved youth and seniors to the transformative power of art. Having helped her students use mural making to grapple with the disproportional shootings of young black men, the issue hits home when her nephew Eric Garner dies in police custody, his last words: "I can't breathe." The tragedy evokes the powerful and deep questions that many artists and activists face: has her nearly eight decades of social justice work meant something? Has it been worth the sacrifice? Can building multicultural bridges through art bring about positive change? Edy's reaction shows the depth of her clear-eyed, compassionate commitment to building a just and peaceful community. A New Color illuminates the social issues of our time and shows how the work of one woman reverberates throughout a community to inspire a powerful chorus: "Our lives matter and we will not be disempowered by those who judge us for our age, gender, or the color of their skin." duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

  • 6:00 am
    Georgia O'Keeffe: A Woman On Paper Artist Georgia O'Keeffe has been called the "Mother of American Modernism," well-known for her flowing, colorful works depicting flowers and plants, dramatic cityscapes and Southwestern landscapes. This documentary highlights the artist's career while focusing on the little-known story of O'Keeffe's time spent in Columbia, S.C. as an art instructor at Columbia College.
    While teaching at the college in the fall of 1915 and the spring of 1916, O'Keeffe found her voice with a series of innovative black and white abstract charcoal drawings that represented a radical break with tradition and led her art-and her career-in a new direction. Collectively titled "Specials, " the charcoal drawings made O'Keeffe one of the very first American artists to practice pure abstraction, and they would go on to define and establish her career as one of the country's leading artists.
