Rose Kennedy Greenway's Soaring Public Art and John Stevens' New Album, "Mr. Nice Guy"

The Rose Kennedy Greenway is once again a boulevard of blossoms. Also springing up there is a fresh vision for public art. That includes a soaring sculpture by Janet Echelman that, for the moment, is redefining the Boston skyline. Next, John Stevens is old school. On his new album, "Mr. Nice Guy," he’s a savior of the standards with his take on jazz, big band and swing. Then we head to the Berkshires—to the Millay Colony for the Arts in Austerlitz, New York. Situated on a seven acre campus that borders poet and playwright Edna St. Vincent Millay’s former house and gardens, the colony gives artists the time and space to create. And finally we meet Sheri “Sparkle” Williams, who continues to dance after 40 years on stage. Her star career has led to countless awards and accolades but praise isn’t what drives her.
