THE ART OF

The Art of small logo

"The Art Of" explores creative fields that fall outside the traditional definition of "art." Each week, a new artistic medium is explored through profiles of boundary-pushing artists. Focusing on the celebrated as well as the undiscovered, this series explores the creative process behind each featured art form and uncovers how and why these artists do what they do. From maestros of meditation to dance masters and scupltors who work with light, each week "The Art Of" reveals the passion that keeps these artists motivated and inspired.
