ARTLAND

Part road movie, part treasure hunt, our vibrant hosts, British architect Charlie Luxton and American travel writer Mame McCutchin, skipper a customized RV -- journeying from San Diego, California to Portland, Maine. Artland proves that American art is perhaps the most vital, free-wheeling and diverse on the planet. In dozens of towns both large and small from California to Maine, the series showcases renowned museums, rarely-seen private collections, soaring public sculpture, architecture and intriguing folk art. From a castle crafted of beer cans to a Stonehenge replica created with junked classic cars, Artland also gives 'props' to that offbeat brand of "roadside kitsch" that captures the American spirit in a way that appeals to art aficionados and neophytes alike. And last but not least, there were meetings with many of the world's most astounding living artists -- from renowned sculptor John Chamberlain to edge-cutting graphic novelist Chris Ware.
