We listen back to Jim Cotter's conversation with Katy Friedland and Marla K. Shoemaker, the authors of the children's book A is for Art Museum. We also drop in on an art program for pre-schoolers at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Susan Lewis considers the Penn Museum exhibition Fulfilling a Prophecy: The Past and Present of the Lenape in Pennsylvania.

Jason Peifer explores Sacred Harp Singing, a resurgent a cappella singing tradition that dates back to the early 1800s.

Tom Keels uncovers Philadelphia's history as a brewery town and explores the city's current beer-making renaissance.
