Dennis Hopper
Most people hear the name "Dennis Hopper" and think of movies like EASY RIDER and APOCALYPSE NOW. But Hopper is more than a world-class actor and director. He is a world-class artist and art collector.

Philadelphia Museum of Art
Museums often rely on the generosity of donors to build their collections. For example, 90% of the works at the Philadelphia Museum of Art were donated. EGG meets Dr. Alvin O. Bellak, whose collection of Indian paintings is now a promised bequest to the museum.

Enrico Caruso Museum
