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. The hobby kits that were Paint By Number were immensely popular in America of the 1950s, but they became a flashpoint in heated arguments about what constitutes art and high and low culture. 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.
