In THE ARTIST TOOLBOX, leading American actors, singers, musicians, designers, painters, dancers, architects and authors discuss their challenges and passions, and the satisfaction they derive from practicing their art. Writer-director John Jacobsen, a faculty member at TheFilmSchool in Seattle, coaxes from his talented subjects engaging insights and candor. Surprising moments from these intimate, frank and humorous discussions reveal the raw beauty behind the creative process. This season, Jacobsen joins inspiring creative masters, including Tony-winning actor Jason Alexander, pop/classical crossover violinist David Garrett, author Isabel Allende, Grammy-winning performer John Legend, fashion designers Isabel and Ruben Toledo, actor Tom Skerritt, haute couture designer Zang Toi, abstract expressionist Sam Gilliam, master graphic designers Massimo and Leila Vignelli, modernist architect Hugh Newell Jacobsen, American Ballet Theatre principals Irina Dvorovenko and Maxim Beloserkovsky, chef Daniel Boulud and jazz pianist Ramsey Lewis.
