Over our first season, we published hundreds of articles, produced twenty-two short documentaries, and aired three hour-long television episodes. We traversed the cultural landscapes sprawling across our state from the metropolises to the towns, between the coast and the desert, across the border, and into the mountains. On New Year's Day, we will be airing a three-hour Artbound Marathon which will feature all of our episodes mashed up into one explosion of Southern California arts and culture. But for the next few days, we will be reliving some of the most read articles by our contributors, breaking down the most popular articles by county and discipline. We hope you enjoy catching up on all the artistic discussions and activities that make California the creative capital of the world!
