PBS39 and the Allentown Art Museum Present
"Shonibare Comes to Allentown"

PBS39 stopped by the Allentown Art Museum earlier this month for the unveiling of a very special sculpture, "Girl Balancing Knowledge III". Yinka Shonibare, an internationally-renowned, London-based artist, artfully crafted the figure using a shiny black globe, lots of colorful textiles and two dozen books.

PBS39 has created a 30 minute program featuring Shonibare, with an in-depth look at the artist and the commissioned piece. Tune in to PBS39 on Wednesday, March 21st at 6pm to see "Shonibare Comes to Allentown". The show will air again on Monday, March 26th at 6pm, and will be available to view anytime at wlvt.org.

This work is the most significant commission by the museum in its history, and the artist, who is debilitated as the result of a virus that attacked his nervous system, discusses his work with passion and a razor-sharp wit. Join PBS39 as we take a one-of-a-kind look into the world of this artist!
