RAVENSWOOD — PBS is throwing a year-long celebration for its Peabody Award-winning series, "Art in the Twenty-First Century — and Lillstreet Art Center scored an invitation to the party.

At the end of its sixth season in 2012, "Art in the Twenty-First Century" reached the milestone of profiling its 100th contemporary artist, after featuring artists ranging from Marina Abramovic to sculptor Andrea Zittel. The series' producers asked institutions across the country to help commemorate the milestone by providing public screenings and events that would broaden the discussion of art in the community.

Lillstreet answered the call.

Beginning Feb. 11, on the second Monday of every month, Lillstreet, at 4437 N. Ravenswood Ave., will host a screening of an episode of "Art in the Twenty-First Century" as part of the PBS campaign "Access 100 Artists." A discussion and social event will follow each screening.

Screenings are scheduled for 6 p.m. Admission is free for Lillstreet members and a suggested $5 donation for non-members.
