Slightly more than a week from today is the exciting premiere of Art & the City, a series of half-hour visits to such cultural hubs as Chicago, Paris, New Orleans, Los Angeles, London, and New York. Actually, not “such as,” but those actual cities. What makes the series extra appealing, apart from its travelogue aspect, is its host, the playful and irrepressible writer David Keeps, whose off-the-cuff comments on the museums, paintings, and artists in each city are more scandalous than scholarly, but always informed. The series starts next Sunday, October 7, with two episodes, Chicago and Paris, back-to-back at 8PM on Ovation TV. Click on the behind-the-scenes outtake from the Chicago episode and learn one of the perks of hosting a TV show.
