VISUAL SIGNATURES is a Public Service Announcement (PSA) that highlights a vast cultural array of visual artists who share with viewers their visions of creating art and the rewards of artistic expression.
ROBERTA BERMAN'S upbringing in Newport Rhode Island, around the corner from the Newport Jazz and Folk Festivals, certainly created an indelible impression that led to her body of work "Sound Sculptures." Berman provides viewers an in-depth look at how she turns wood, "an inanimate object" into "interactive pieces" that ultimately become a synthesis of figurative sculptures and musical instruments.
VISUAL SIGNATURES is produced by the Intercultural Alliance of Artists & Scholars, Inc. (IAAS), a NY-based nonprofit organization that promotes multicultural literature and artistic expression. Seizing the power of television to expand social consciousness, the IAAS fuels the movement for progressive social, cultural and political transformation by exposing the public to perspectives excluded from the corporate-owned media through public access television.
