Art:21-Art in the Twenty-First Century is a PBS documentary series and a web resource about contemporary visual art in the United States. Flat was engaged over a seven-year period to build and expand the brand into a vibrant online resource for contemporary art.
Flat’s work included the PBS subsites for the television series where it was our pleasure to work collaboratively with Open, the firm responsible for the program’s visual identity. In addition Flat created an extensive online hub for educators.
The Art 21 sites provide an in-depth look at the artists featured on the show through interactive flashcards, video clips and interview transcripts as well as in classroom materials, curriculums, and blogs. To make such an ambitious site manageable, Flat created a simple, modular system to facilitate easy updates and future expansion.
