Ovation TV has been a lovely escape these last few days. Presently Ovation is airing the American Revolutionaries series through July 31. Documentaries and movies profile an assortment of the best figures in architecture, film, design, music, and art. This evening I am indulging in I.M. Pei and Frank Lloyd Wright. The movies and documentaries are very well done, informational and inspirational.
Last night it was Basquiat, a film about Jean Michel Basquiat with an incredible all star cast (See David Bowie as Andy Warhol...Excellent!) Some of the other artists profiled are Warhol, Rothko, Nat King Cole, The last 48 hours of Kurt Cobain, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Martha Graham, Robert Rauschenberg, Orson Wells, Sylvia Plath, Marlon Brando, James Dean, How to Draw a Bunny and so much more.
I hope you might get the chance to catch a few of these programs. In addition to excellence in television viewing, the Ovation website also allows community viewers to submit their own artwork. Seriously, check out Ovation TV... you will not be disappointed.
