We talk with noted sculptor Ursula Von Rydingsvard. Her powerful work is alive in non-verbal space. It comes into the body. One feels its weight and presence. Ann Hatch, one of the Bay Area's most generous and influential figures, talks about her life, about Capp Street Projects, The Oxbow School, the Walker Art Center and her childhood in Pebble Beach. We learn about the shocking practice of former Marine Marine Ehren Tool, who gives his art away. And hear the unsung saga of Carlo Ferretti's Cove.
