WILLIAM L. BIRD, JR., Curator at the National Museum of American History, Smithsonian Institution returns to Inquiry to talk about his catalog for the exhibition PAINT BY NUMBER: THE HOW TO CRAZE THAT SWEPT THE NATION.

Art critics railed against them, but the public loved them. Tune in tonight and learn how these kits were made and who loved them and what kits were the most popular.
