Many people love the art of Georgia O'Keeffe. However, few know that she had a younger sister named Ida who was an artist in her own right.

Ida had fewer opportunities than her big sister, though, and never became famous.

A new art exhibition featuring Ida O'Keeffe's work aims to put her in the spotlight, WBUR's Andrea Shea (@asheaarts) reports.
