Assignment America

Sorry, voting is now closed. The story with the most votes will be revealed Monday night at 6:30 p.m. ET on the CBS Evening News. And tune in to catch Steve Hartman's report on Friday.

Steve could visit the Velveteria - Carl and Caren's collection of nothing but velvet paintings. They've got 1,500 of them. Are they tacky wall coverings...or misunderstood masterpieces?
