7 editions published between 1995 and 2006 in English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One day. I had a vision: I saw the Earth as sculpture." Isamu Noguchi often said that the space around a thing is as important as the thing itself. This program shows Noguchi turning landscapes into participatory works of art as it follows in dramatic detail the struggle to bring his ideas to fruition at Miami's Bayfront Park and at Moere Numa Park, outside Sapporo. His austere sets for Martha Graham, which helped define modern dance, and his UNESCO garden in Paris, which shaped earth, water, and greenery into a series of multisensory surprises, are featured as well. A brilliant glimpse of an artist at work

Islands by Albert Maysles( Visual )

14 editions published between 1986 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Maysles' first collaboration with Christo was Valley Curtain (1974), an Academy Award nominee. Running Fence followed in 1978. Then came Islands. From Miami's Biscayne Bay on to Paris and Berlin, this film resonates with political intrigue: Christo's fight for permission to surround eleven Biscayne Bay islands with 6.5 million square feet of bright pink fabric, interwoven with his struggle to wrap the Pont-Neuf in Paris and the Reichstag in Berlin. From raucous public debates to off-the-record discussions, we see seven years of the artist at work: probing, politicking, debating the meaning of art. Then comes the reward: Christ's first view from the air of his competed Islands. Art history in the making. - VHS description

Robert Frost : a lover's quarrel with the world( Visual )

4 editions published between 1963 and 2012 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Long unavailable in its original 52-minute long version, Robert Frost: A Lover's Quarrel with the World has now been jointly restored by the UCLA Film & Television Archive and the Academy Film Archive and mastered to the best possible video standards by Milestone Film & Video. One of the 20th century's finest poets, the 87-year-old Robert Frost was nearing the end of his life when WGBH asked Shirley Clarke to film a documentary about him. The two rebels got along famously - both had grown up in the city, but had a love for nature. The result of their collaboration was an Academy Award for Best Feature Documentary. Frost's poems were direct and economic depictions of rural life cloaked in the colloquialisms of his beloved New England, but they were intricately woven poetic forms straddling the line between tradition and modernism. An iconic American poet, his work earned him international recognition and four Pulitzer Prizes
