(Durham, December 13, 2017) – New Hampshire PBS presents viewers with a thought-provoking, cultural viewpoint this December.
Articulate with Jim Cotter is a weekly 30-minute arts and culture series that shows us how creative expression is an essential human need, one that reflects and shapes the culture we live in.
Each week, veteran broadcast journalist Jim Cotter engages in conversations with artists from across the creative spectrum. This season, he profiles guests as diverse as children’s author Daniel Handler, better known as Lemony Snicket, Boston-based sculptor Janet Echelman, and modern day milliner Arturo Rios, among others.
Combining exceptional visual storytelling with a smart and straightforward attitude, Articulate offers a new brand of arts journalism for today’s audience. “Our goal is to infuse public television—as well as the digital space—with the perspectives of today’s working artists,” said Cotter. “Art is for everyone, and Articulate makes it possible for anyone to connect with the culture, no matter where they are.”
Since it debuted in 2014, Articulate with Jim Cotter has grown from a local TV magazine show to an Emmy® award-winning, nationally syndicated program. Season two’s content includes a wide range of artistic disciplines like kinetic sculpture, photography, jazz, ceramics, and literature. The season’s locations are as diverse as its subjects, with artist profiles hailing from Cuba, Puerto Rico, Ireland, the UK and Italy alongside content from New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston, New Orleans, and beyond.
The series will premiere on New Hampshire PBS Explore on Sunday, December 17 at 4:30 pm, with encore presentations available Sundays at 11 am on NHPBS beginning December 24. Additionally, episodes of Articulate will be available online via nhpbs.org. This season offers 42 segments of interviews and profiles with today’s leading artists, thinkers, and doers across a diverse range of media and genres.
Articulate is made possible by generous funding from the Neubauer Family Foundation (also supporters of NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross and the Metropolitan Opera’s Live in HD!) and is produced for WHYY by Arts Advance.
