FOCUS ON THE ARTS: THE THIRTIES: PHOTOGRAPHY (Color, 1983, 12 Minutes)
Venerable voice artist Lary Lewman navigates us through two simultaneous and very different streams of American life in the 1930s. The first stream travels through the moving photographic art of the Great Depression made possible by FDR's support of artists during these dire times through the Farm Security Administration (FSA) photography project under the direction of economist, government official and photographer Roy Stryker. This work resulted in the creation of a new breed: the photo-journalist. Profiles include photographers Russell Lee, Arthur Rothstein (who helps narrate this documentary short), Marion Post Walcott, Dorothea Lang, Ben Shahn, Jack Delano, John Vachon and Walker Evans. The second stream flows through the fashion photography of Cecil Beaton (who later became a war photographer), Alfred Cheney Johnston's stylish images, Lewis Hine's images of working men and women, and Berenice Abbott's capturing of life in New York City with the help of FDR's WPA (Works Progress Administration).

The life and art of French painter, printmaker, draughtsman, caricaturist and illustrator Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, whose immersion in the colorful and theatrical life of Paris in the late 19th century allowed him to produce a collection of enticing, elegant, and provocative images of the modern, sometimes decadent, affairs of those times.

SWEET DISASTER: DEATH OF A SPEECHWRITER (Color, 1986, 5 Minutes)
An episode of Channel 4's Sweet Diaster film shorts in which the dangers within the chasm between geopolitical rhetoric of a nation and the moral health that nation is exposed.
THE DOOMSDAY CLOCK (Color, 1987, 10 Minutes)
A United Nations cartoon short dramatizing The Doomsday Clock, a symbol that represents the likelihood of a man-made global catastrophe. Maintained since 1947 by the members of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, the Clock is a metaphor for threats to humanity from unchecked scientific and technical advances. The Clock represents the hypothetical global catastrophe as "midnight" and the Bulletin's opinion on how close the world is to a global catastrophe as a number of "minutes" to midnight, assessed in January of each year. The main factors influencing the Clock are nuclear risk and global warming (climate change). The Bulletin's Science and Security Board also monitors new developments in the life sciences and technology that could inflict irrevocable harm to humanity. The Clock's original setting in 1947 was seven minutes to midnight. It has been set backward and forward 24 times since then, the largest-ever number of minutes to midnight being 17 (in 1991), and the smallest 100 seconds (1 minute and 40 seconds) in January 2020.
THE UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS (Color, 1988, 15 Minutes)

WALLY F GALLERIES: CAPROLAN NYLON PRINTED FABRIC EXHIBITION (Black/White & Color, 1966, 3 Minutes)
A pair of commercials, the first in black and white and the second in color, of an exhibition at the Manhattan location of Wally F. Galleries of Allied Chemical's Caprolan nylon printed fabrics, which hang on the wall in frames and on the frames of models as dresses. The models move about the galleries in and around the mounted fabrics they are wearing, begging the question "Is it really art? Or is it just another fashion fad? Maybe it's both, now that a posh art gallery gives its nod of approval to the print explosion in fashion today."
Art is a diverse range of (products of) human activities involving creative imagination to express technical proficiency, beauty, emotional power, or conceptual ideas. There is no generally agreed definition of what constitutes art, and ideas have changed over time. The three classical branches of visual art are painting, sculpture, and architecture. Theatre, dance, and other performing arts, as well as literature, music, film and other media such as interactive media, are included in a broader definition of the arts. Until the 17th century, art referred to any skill or mastery and was not differentiated from crafts or sciences. In modern usage after the 17th century, where aesthetic considerations are paramount, the fine arts are separated and distinguished from acquired skills in general, such as the decorative or applied arts. The nature of art and related concepts, such as creativity and interpretation, are explored in a branch of philosophy known as aesthetics. The resulting artworks are studied in the professional fields of art criticism and the history of art.
