A period of stability is allowing Iraq's capital city to experience a cultural renaissance. Baghdad is experiencing a phase of rare stability and security that is allowing it to return to a once burgeoning art scene.

While decades of war and political upheaval stifled that once vibrant scene, the city is now experiencing a cultural renaissance. NewsHour Weekend Special Correspondent Simona Foltyn reports.
