Poet, musician and artist Patti Smith visited Penn State to receive the 2013 Institute of the Arts and Humanities Medal for Distinguished Achievement. She joined us in our studio just a few hours before the evening’s celebration, and her much-anticipated solo performance, to talk with us about her life, art and friendships.
