Behold! This week's Saturday show focuses on a bevy of our favorite segments that investigate "Art in the Real World."

An artist creates an online gallery of landscapes of drone strike locations before they were hit; a fascinating combination of journalism and art that creates a new view of a largely secret war; the author of the graphic novel "Trinity" discusses illustrating a turning point in U.S. history, the top secret WWII Manhattan Project, which resulted in the atomic bomb; artist, activist and self-proclaimed "humble negro printer" Amos Kennedy talks about his work and why he sells it for just fifteen dollars; Dartmouth's arts center celebrates its anniversary with a community installation of pianos; a composer known for making music with a bridge turns his eye toward transforming the Eiffel Tower into a gigantic instrument; New Sounds From Arab Lands on creating music inspired by disparate traditions; and a New Hampshire man follows his artistic dream, which happens to be building a castle on a remote mountaintop.
