Claire Danes has signed up to shine a light on North America's top artists as the new host of television programme Art 21.
The Homeland star will helm the upcoming eighth season of Public Service Broadcasting's (PBS) acclaimed series, with each episode focusing on a different city, and four artists who have made a name for themselves in the art world in that town.
Among those featured on the new season are Los Angeles' Ed Arceneaux and Tala Madani, Chicago’s Nick Cave and Barbara Kasten, and Mexico City’s Natalia Almada and Minerva Cuevas.
Danes has been a longtime supporter of the arts, since both her parents were artists in New York City.

Claire Danes has warned of the perils of travelling with a toddler.
The 36-year-old actress is mother to three-year-old Cyrus with husband Hugh Dancy and as busy actors, the couple has commitments in various countries, meaning the little boy is already more well-travelled than many adults.
However, as she appeared on Late Night With Seth Meyers on Monday (04Apr16), Claire warned new father Seth against travelling with a young child.
"The worst point is when they're starting to walk, but they don't have the attention span to watch a show, so they just want to wander the aisles and you just want to rip every hair out of every follicle," she laughed.

Claire Danes felt like a "total failure" when she didn't get her son a live bunny rabbit this Easter.
The 36-year-old actress is mother to three-year-old son Cyrus with husband Hugh Dancy. When it came to celebrating this Easter weekend (26-27Mar16), Claire thought she had prepared well enough, but her little boy was left somewhat disappointed when she failed to provide a live Easter Bunny.
"He was so sweet. I went to get him in the morning and I’m so much more excited than he is," Homeland star Claire laughed during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. "I was like, ‘I think the bunny rabbit came, the Easter Bunny came last night, do you want to go and check it out?’ And he was like, (baby voice) ‘I just want to hold a little bunny in my hand’. And my heart just went (explode). I also felt like a total failure. I was like ‘I’ve got lots, lots of chocolate!’ "
When it comes to Easter, Claire, Hugh and their family have a somewhat unusual way of marking the occasion; they compete with innovative eggs, all with the hope of landing the cover of their annual Easter egg book.

The 36-year-old actress adores her ''very British'' spouse Hugh Dancy - with whom she has two-year-old son Cyrus - but finds his ''indirect'' way of speaking can be very frustrating.
