Environmentalism and Art--Claes Oldenburg--Yannick Nezet-Seguin--Elizabeth Osborne


Susan Lewis considers the intersection of environmentalism and art with a visit to the Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education and the Asian Arts Initiative. The two venues are now hosting work by environmental artists from Taiwan.

Jim Cotter speaks with legendary pop artist Claes Oldenburg. The creator of two of Philadelphia's most iconic works of public art, he's been commissioned by the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts to create a third.

The Philadelphia Inquirer's David Patrick Stearns looks back to the first visit to Philadelphia of Yannick Nezet-Seguin, the next music director of the Philadelphia Orchestra.

And we profile the veteran Philadelphia painter Elizabeth Osborne.
