WHYY’s multimedia technology can open doors to an infinite variety of arts and culture experiences. The impact can be educational, as seen in the teachers’ guides for the original WHYY-TV production Thomas Eakins: Scenes from Modern Life. It can be informative, such as regular arts reports on WHYY-FM. And, there’s the sheer pleasure of hearing a young soloist during a Curtis Institute of Music broadcast on Sunday Showcase.

Here’s how WHYY’s Arts and Culture Service enlightened our community and the nation:
Ongoing Productions
National Specials
Regional Specials

Arts and culture groups in our region continually approached WHYY to develop partnerships to increase their reach and visibility through our unique resources. With this encouragement, we are exploring new programs for next year, including an expansion of Sunday Showcase for the 2003-04 season with Astral Artistic Services. Next year, look for the broadcast of a special jazz, gospel and classical concert with diva Denyce Graves, pop star Patti LaBelle and the R&B group Take 6.

Our goal is to continue to share our arts and culture specials and reports with audiences here and nationwide, allowing others to discover the richness of our region.

One of America's greatest 19th century artists, Thomas Eakins, painted Max Schmidtt rowing on the Schuylkill River.
