ABOUT THE PROGRAM
TRANSCRIPT

GET A LOOK AT A NEW GALLERY

FOR ONE OF AMERICA'S FINEST

ASIAN ART COLLECTIONS.

HELLO.

I'M SAM SAX, DIRECTOR OF THE

MINNEAPOLIS INSTITUTE OF ARTS.

I SPEND A LOT OF TIME TALKING

TO PEOPLE ABOUT HOW TO ENJOY

AND APPRECIATE THE ARTS.

SOMETIMES I WORRY THAT PEOPLE

HAVE A TENDENCY TO TRY TOO

HARD.

I TELL PEOPLE NOT JUST TO LOOK

BUT ALSO TO SEE.

OFTEN IT'S MUCH BETTER JUST TO

RELAX AND LET THE IMAGES FLOW.

I THINK THIS APPLIES TO OUR

FIRST PIECE ON WYLD RYCE.

IT'S PART OF A SERIES CALLED

MINNESOTA "LANDSCAPES" THAT

KTCA HAS COMMISSIONED FROM

VIDEO ARTISTS AROUND THE

COUNTRY.

THIS PIECE WAS MADE BY

MINNESOTA ARTIST JAMES BIORN,

AND IT DEALS, IN PART, WITH A

LANDSCAPE THAT ISN'T LAND AT

ALL.

IT'S WATER.

IT'S A WONDERFUL PIECE THAT

SHOWS US ALL DIFFERENT KINDS

OF BEAUTY IN WATER.

BIORN.

AND BEYOND THAT, HE'S CREATED

SOME PURELY VISUAL IMAGES.

DON'T TRY TOO HARD TO DECIPHER

WHAT YOU'RE SEEING, JUST WATCH

WITH AN OPEN MIND AND TAKE THE

IMAGES FOR WHAT THEY ARE.
