Check out this piece by ABC News on artist Norm Sartorius. You can find two of his pieces in the Center's Museum Collection. Stop in and see them in person Sat-Tue, 10 am - 5 pm.

    Stirring the Soul: Why one man has spent 30 years only carving abstract wooden spoons
    For 71-year-old Norm Sartorius of Parkersburg, West Virginia, a simple eating utensil represents everything human. "It's an instrument, a tool of nurturing that is universal, or very close to universal, in the human experience," Sartorius told ABC News. Sartorius is a studio woodworker who only carves sculptural wooden spoons.

    The homicide detective slipped open the padlock on the closet in the bowels of the Roundhouse - Philly's hulking police headquarters at Eighth and Race. Stacked in double rows on the shelves were binders - some clothbound ledgers, wilting from age, others made of cheap plastic.
