Documentary's shut-ins raise unanswered questions

The six Angulo brothers spent most of their teen years in a crowded apartment in a New York housing project. They didn't merely live there; they lived there.

Sister Mary's colorful legacy

The poster as a medium of communication underwent a renaissance in the 1960s. Provocative statements, bold colors and clever images were everywhere — from retail spaces to protest marches to classrooms and college dorms. Important graphic designers like Milton Glaser, Andy Warhol and the rock music artists working in San Francisco have all been critically examined and exhibited. That only makes the omission of innovator Sister Mary Corita Kent puzzling.
