American Art Today

13 episodes, 1956, Hofstra College in cooperation with WOR-TV

From WNET: 

"This sequel to “The Arts Around Us” will deal with modern American art in all its diversity – concentrating on such broad areas as expressionism, realism, classicism, influence of science, and sources of 20th Century American Art. Dr. Malcolm Preston, chairman of the Hofstra College department of art, is the featured narrator and demonstrates many of his lecture points at the easel during these thirteen half-hour programs. He uses many originals and prints from contemporary American painters as visual aids and a number of internationally known American artists will appear as guests on the program. American Art Today was produced for the Center by Hofstra College in cooperation with WOR-TV."
