Special Look! It’s Libby and Roberta, Episode 8


This episode takes us to Pageant Gallery for a behind-the-scenes look at Belted Bronze, Terry Adkins’ homage to blues singer Bessie Smith who lived many years in Philadelphia but whose life here is not noted nor memorialized in the Cater St. neighborhood where she lived. For more photos of the show, see Roberta’s flickr and Libby’s flickr. Thanks to the great David Kessler who films, produces and edits our video series!
