Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Renowned art critic David A. Keeps was the host of this six-part miniseries, the first original production from cable's Ovation TV. Each episode surveyed the art scene in a different city, taking into consideration such indigenous means of expression as painting, sculpture, architecture and music. Described by one observer as "a delirious cross between your favorite college professor and a wired Sister Wendy [host of a popular art-oriented PBS series]", Mr. Keeps was equally as enthusiastic over the sights and sounds of Chicago as he was over the beauties of Paris, to say nothing of New Orleans, London, Los Angeles and the Chelsea district of New York City. Art and the City made its first appearance on October 7, 2007.
