In TREE SAFARI: THE KOA CONNECTION, acclaimed sculptor Brad Sells teases fine art from rough timber. A melange of art and eco-travel, the program traces the arc of Sells' artistic process while exploring the history, science and traditional culture of the places he visits. Emmy-winning filmmaker Todd Jarrell follows Sells from his Cookville, Tenn. studio to the forested volcanic slopes of Hawaii in a quest for the exotic koa wood, revered for its density, luster, tone and color.
