In conjunction with the broadcast of "Sister Wendy's American Collection" on public television, PBS online hosts this educational Website. Sister Wendy is a Reverend Mother and scholar of English who began studying art during her stay with the Carmelite nuns of Quindenham, Norfolk. She now has a popular television and book series in which she shares her "signature blend of intellect, reverence, and admiration for great works of art." Her latest project explores American museum collections. The Website furnishes color images of the works accompanied by Sister Wendy's equally colorful commentary, background on the artists, plus a guide to the six museums featured. The diverse international selection of art and artifacts includes a Native American earthen bowl, an African drum, Egyptian statuary, as well as an array of classical to contemporary paintings and drawings.
