PBS Digital Studios' The Art Assignment furthers their exploration of New Orleans to visit artist Bob Snead. He's the Executive Director of Press Street, an organization that promotes art and literature in the community through events, publications and arts education. Snead embraces the collaborative nature of art-making and gives us the assignment to produce an Assembly Line.
