KQED / San Francisco's Spark website says "...More than a showcase for art objects and the artists who make them, Spark takes the audience inside the creative process to witness the challenges, opportunities and rewards of making art....." A Spark video titled The Fine Art of Collecting, which first aired on broadcast television January 28, 2004. "...shows that collecting can be an art form unto itself, when we meet collectors who have turned a casual interest into a lifelong passion. Spend the day with John Held Jr., who saved every scrap of mail art he received, day after day for almost 30 years, as he continues to build his collection, one stamp at a time."
