ART OF MARRIAGE: Isabel and Ruben Toledo have never been ones to seek the limelight, but PBS has turned its cameras on the husband and wife designers for a new program called “The Artist Toolbox.” Host and director John Jacobsen visited the pair in their eclectic Tin Pan Alley loft for the segment, which will air in New York on Feb. 3. Not surprisingly, the Toledos’ views vary when it comes to what is art. Isabel Toledo defined it as feeling, whereas her husband pinned it on spirit. “With my art, I can’t even see spirit. I feel things and then I somehow give it form and give it shape,” she said.

As for Ruben Toledo, he said, “To discover something is an art, that is [being] an artist.”

Jacobsen is also going behind the scenes with other artistic types, including musician John Legend, actor Tom Skerritt and writer Isabel Allende.
