“We are very fortunate to work with an incredible team of professionals locally and within the national PBS system and this collaborative project speak to our innovative efforts to provide quality educational and entertaining content. True to our mission as a PBS member station, WEDU is proud to play a part in bringing our viewers this exceptional program series,” said Susan Howarth, President and CEO for WEDU, expressing her enthusiasm for the series.
WEDU Arts Plus is a result of a collaborative effort of a group of innovative large market PBS stations to launch the “Major Market Group Arts Initiative.”
