Artbound explores the arts and culture of Southern California through articles, essays, and thinkpieces by more than 80 contributors in 11 counties. These correspondents cover cultural happenings in the communities where they live, providing an inside look at art across the region. Then the Artbound audience votes online for an article to be made into a short online video. Those videos are then assembled into a broadcast television show.
