MORE INFO: Press Release

Art21 Telethon is an artist-initiated eight-hour performance event and fundraiser, featuring interviews, musical acts, animal talents, comedy, audience participation, and much more.

Hosted by artist Ronnie Bass, who developed the event with Art21 featured artist Tommy Hartung and independent curator Miriam Katz, the Art21 Telethon is both a durational performance modeled after marathon television broadcasts, as well as an actual fundraiser where attendees and online viewers can both phone in or contribute online to support Art21.

Proceeds from the event will support the production of Art21's documentary film series, multimedia and internet-based education resources, film archive, and public programs.
