Poetry Out Loud Virginia
Hip Hop star Christylez Bacon brought his impressive talents to Richmond in March of 2019 as the featured artist for the annual Poetry Out Loud Contest, sponsored by the Virginia Commision for the Arts. In addition to being one of the most stylish entertainers around, Bacon is a comprehensive artist and teacher. Over the course of two days, he dazzled high school students in a songwriting workshop and delighted a packed house and television audience at the studios of WCVE. In a rousing encore, Bacon blew the roof off of VCU's Museum of Contemporary Art.
