American musician and artist Patti Smith, right, is greeted by Pope Francis at the end of his weekly general audience, in St. Peter's Square at the Vatican, Wednesday, April 10, 2013. Smith told the media afterwards that she found the new pontiff "very interesting" and "liked him a lot." In her current exhibit at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Smith has a pair of Pope Benedict XV’s slippers on display, which she acquired in a sale at a monastery. She wanted them because he was often referred to as “the pope of peace” ahead going into the First World War.
