Wright State University Libraries' Wright Brothers Collection. This
online
exhibit currently contains 408 entries, provides coverage of the
Wrights'
early inventive period (documenting their experimental gliders and
flight
testing in both North Carolina and Ohio), and offers accounts of their

http://www.whitney.org/2002biennial/

The largest Biennial since 1981, the Whitney Museum of American Art's
2002
Biennial Exhibition presents the work of 113 artists and collaborative
teams. Showcased from March 7 - May 26, 2002, the exhibition, which is
the
Museum's signature survey of contemporary American art, fills the 2nd,
3rd,
and 4th floors of the museum, as well as the Museum's Sculpture Court,
stairwell, main elevator, and Lobby Gallery. The curators of the 2002
Biennial traveled to 43 towns and cities in 27 states and to Puerto Rico
to
view works, and have included artists born in 23 countries, ranging in
ages
from 24 to 71. In addition, for the first time, in conjunction with the
Public Art Fund, several Biennial pieces will be presented in Central
Park.
According to Lawrence Rinder, chief curator of the exhibition, "The 2002
Biennial pays tribute to the spirit and variety of American artistic
practice throughout the country." The exhibition contains art works in
three
main categories --- film and video, Internet-based art, and performance
and
sound art. Internet users may visit the Museum's Web site to find a list
of
all artists featured in the exhibit, as well as a glimpse of some of the
art
works in the film/video and Internet-based art categories. [MG]

12. Mark Twain: A Film Directed by Ken Burns
http://www.pbs.org/marktwain/

_Mark Twain_, a film co-produced by Ken Burns and Dayton Duncan, aired
on
PBS January 14th and 15th of 2002. Presently, PBS is offering the
general
public the opportunity to go behind the scenes at Florentine Films and
learn
about the making of the movie. Internet users can meet the co-producers
and
find out what they have say about Twain, as well as follow the steps of
the
filmmaking process. In addition, users have the opportunity to view a
scrapbook that offers some of Twain's writings and collected artifacts.
The
site also contains classroom activities, selected writings, a chronology
of
Twain's life, and links to other related sites. Aspiring film producers,
history and literature teachers, and Mark Twain enthusiasts may find
this
site quite valuable. [MG]
