Poet Philip Levine discovered jazz on the radio when he was a teenager.

Growing up in the late 1950s and early '60s, Betty Cantor developed an early talent for tinkering.

In 2010 — long before David Bowie Is travelled to ten other locations around the world, before it landed in Brooklyn earlier this month — London's Victoria & Albert Museum was approached by the rock icon's management to create an exhibit out of the singer's archives. At the time, the idea that such a show would be taken seriously, much less prove to be a success, were hardly foregone conclusions.
