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.

“Drag and cabaret is a space for permission, right? Let’s be loose, let’s really be ourselves by being someone else. I think Mr. Rogers is a space for permission of feeling.,” - John Jarboe Read more of the WHYY interview at the link below. You Can Never Go Down the Drain is now running through July 1.

    Philly cabaret artist offers neighborly homage to Mr. Rogers
    "When I was very young, I had a dog that I loved very much. Her name is Mitzi. She got to be old, and she died," confessed Fred Rogers in the 1970 "Death of a Goldfish" episode of "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood." "When she died, I cried."
