Susan Lewis considers a new multi-venue exhibition celebrating 20th-century Pennsylvania sculptor and furniture maker Wharton Esherick.

Jim Cotter speaks with sculptor Sean Kenney. A collection of animals he's created from LEGO bricks is on view at the Philadelphia Zoo.

And we listen back as David Patrick Stearns explores the Beatles' Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band with composer Jennifer Higdon. Higdon cites the Beatles as a major influence on her work.
