PBS Summer Arts Festival

Take a vacation while sitting in your own home with WCTE and visit close to 20 cities around the world, enjoying music, art, theatre, cultural history, and architecture with this year’s PBS Summer Arts Festival.  Grab behind the scenes peeks with your guide, Anna Deavere Smith, and enjoy programming you cannot find anywhere else!
