About

Oregon Art Beat is OPB's Emmy Award-winning local arts series, entering its 15th season in fall 2013. Art Beat profiles artists, musicians and artisans from around Oregon and the Northwest. OPB producers and crew travel the region capturing stories about everything from salsa to sculpture and bagpipes to ballet to produce this half-hour weekly show. Oregon Art Beat stories can be found on multiple platforms such as radio and the Web, providing deeper coverage of the arts.

The program airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 1 a.m. and 6 p.m. In the Mountain Time Zone of Eastern Oregon, the program airs at 9 p.m. Thursdays and repeats at 7 p.m. on Sundays.

Funding for Oregon Art Beat is provided in part by the James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation, the Robert D. and Marcia H. Randall Charitable Trust, the Kinsman Foundation, and a grant from the Oregon Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts.
