AUSTIN, Texas–The Fine Arts Library (FAL) will be hosting an advance screening of season 5 of the Peabody Award-winning PBS documentary series Art: 21—Art in the Twenty-First Century.

Art: 21 is the only prime time national television series focused exclusively on contemporary art. Through in-depth profiles and interviews, the four-part series examines the inspiration, vision and techniques behind the creative works of some of today's most thought-provoking artists.

The sneak preview being hosted at FAL is part of Art21 Access '09, a nation-wide series of screenings organized in partnership with Americans for the Arts as part of National Arts and Humanities Month, which is celebrated every October.

The screening of "Episode 3: Transformation" takes place from 4-5pm on October 7 in DFA 2.204. It is free and open to the public.

Art: 21—Art in the Twenty-First Century, "Episode 3: Transformation" – Whether observing and satirizing society or reinventing icons of literature, art history, and popular culture, the artists featured in Transformation capture the sensibilities of our age while at times inhabiting the characters they have created. Yinka Shonibare MBE, Cindy Sherman and Paul McCarthy are featured.
