Youthfulness is often put on a pedestal in United States culture. At least that's how Colorado Springs sculptor Jo Hart sees it.

Hart, who is 58, believes there's a "beauty" in getting older, but is not convinced many others share her view. That's the focus of her art show "The Older We Get..." It features nearly a dozen porcelain sculptures described as "part-trophy, part-bust," and is at the Manitou Arts Center in Manitou Springs through Feb. 12.  

Hart spoke with Colorado Matters host Andrea Dukakis.
