"My heart is a product of art..."
In late March, Rocco visited Shreveport, Louisiana to talk creative placemaking and to get a first-hand look at the Shreveport Regional Art Council's (SRAC) MICD25 project. One of the artists that Rocco met during his trip was Shreveport native Poetic X (Hugh Hamilton). A 2008 recipient of an SRAC fellowship, Poetic X has performed with Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, and The Winans, among many others. Check out the video for his encyclopedic take on "Art Works."
