The Art21 Michael C. Sandler Education Program engages audiences in dialogue about the contemporary art and the artists featured in Art21 films. Art21’s educational initiatives include the Art21 Educators learning community, the production of interpretive resources, professional development workshops and lectures, and participatory programs and screening events.

Art21 serves educators and their students by providing free materials and programs devoted to the exploration of contemporary art and artists, including a widely distributed series of Educators’ and Screening Guides. In the months following the broadcast of each new season of Art in the Twenty-First Century, Art21 encourages a wide variety of partners—schools, universities, libraries, museums, non-profit organizations, galleries, arts and cultural spaces, community centers, and more—to join the Art21 Screening Society by hosting public screenings of Art in the Twenty-First Century.
