Description: Dubbed a "pop star" (New York Times) and a "phenomenon" (Washington Post), the host of the wildly popular art series on PBS, Sister Wendy, is back, this time at six of America's prestigious museums: the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Kimbell Art Museum (Fort Worth), the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York City), the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the Chicago Art Institute, and the Cleveland Museum of Art. In each museum, Sister Wendy picks a variety of art -- paintings, sculpture, porcelain figures -- and draws attention to the small details and the history of the artist in a way that takes the mystery out and at the same time allows the wonder in. As she says, "We know great art by its effect on us. If we are prepared to look without preconceptions, without defenses, without haste, then art will change us".

With writing that is informative, chatty, funny, and revealing, and more than 250 color illustrations throughout, Sister Wendy's American Collection offers a personal tour through the country's greatest art that will inspire readers to make their own pilgrimage to the great museums of America.
