Immerse yourself in the art. Meet the artists. Watch them create. Hear from the organizers. Take in the colorful stories behind the murals.

Muraling Austin dives into the dynamic and impactful mural art that is elevating this capital city.

This unique (Lone Star) Emmy and Gold Telly award-winning three-part PBS documentary series journeys into some of Austin’s most inspiring public murals and provides portraits of the artists and activists who made them. From large-scale installations to intimate painted walls, these murals celebrate people (Frida Kahlo, Angela Davis); honor histories (19th Amendment, Austin Black Senators baseball team); and transform spaces (Rosewood Park, The Pan American Center). Muraling Austin provides an inside look at some of Austin’s most expressive and impactful public art. Full Case Study.

the Sun

Looking Sun-ward has sparked curiosity and contemplation for as long as humans have existed.

Touching the Sun explores the science and symbolism of our closest star, the Sun. It delves into heliophysics – of total solar eclipses, the elusive corona, the solar winds, and the Sun’s origins. It reflects upon the historical and cultural context of Sun watching and Sun worshiping across time and cultures. It uncovers the universal quest for knowledge and human expression. It provokes questions about our responsibility to the planet and humanity.  It affirms the life-sustaining power of our Sun.


Touching the Sun traces humanity's relationship with our life-sustaining Sun and follows our quest to understand its mysteries. It allows us to touch the Sun.​ Full Case Study.

Martin Scorsese Presents
The Blues

Many music genres – soul, country, rock n’ roll, hip-hop, and jazz – have been influenced by the blues. Yet blues music was slipping into the past as the music’s greats aged and died off. Then Martin Scorsese launched a comprehensive multi-media project to raise awareness of the blues’ powerful influence with a significant contribution to American culture. Martin Scorsese Presents the Blues was a seven-night film festival on PBS with films by acclaimed directors Martin Scorsese, Clint Eastwood, Wim Wenders, Marc Levin, Charles Burnett,  Richard Pearce, and Mike Figgis. It also included a 13-part NPR radio series, a teacher’s guide, a companion book, 25 music CDs, 120 “On the Road” events, a traveling museum exhibit, a concert at Radio City Music Hall, and a concert film.

As Newsweek said, this project “brings the blues screaming to life.”​ Full Case Study.

"Anne is one of the top professionals, not only in the PBS system, but also in the industry. She is one of those rare individuals who can integrate the disciplines of strategic thinking and creative expression. I am in awe of her ability to wrangle the most ambitious, multi-dimensional projects, such as her pioneering work on Rx for Survival: A Global Health Challenge, the global health social impact campaign with the Gates Foundation. I believe the future of PBS depends on this type of innovation."

Martin Scorsese Presents The Blues surpassed our highest expectations. The amount of exposure Volkswagen received through this sponsorship was truly phenomenal and demonstrates the kind of results companies can achieve through such fully integrated, multi-tiered marketing opportunities with public television.”

“When a religious-right organization launched a petition campaign for Congress to defund PBS because of my NOVA film, The Bible’s Buried Secrets, WGBH brought in Anne. She spearheaded a thoughtful promotional campaign that encouraged public engagement and inter-faith dialogue. Her efforts yielded dozens of print articles and reviews, radio interviews and live events, and ultimately produced one of the largest broadcast audiences for NOVA for the past decade.”
