Diana Glows Again at the Philadelphia Museum of Art

The Philadelphia Museum of Art’s statue of Diana, Goddess of the Hunt, was created by the renowned sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens in 1893, for the top of Madison Square Garden - which was then on New York City's East Side. As WRTI’s Susan Lewis reports, a recent re-gilding recalls its past, but also suits its contemporary home. 

Listen to more of Susan's interview with Kathleen Foster, the Philadelphia Museum of Art's Senior Curator of American Art, about the creation of Diana.
