Ferlinghetti, Patel and Guidi

Meet the Lawrence Ferlinghetti you didn't know -- you might already know him as a poet, but did you also know that he's a painter, too?

Then visit Kenyan-born Indian American Shailja Patel as she performs her spoken word piece about migration and personal history.

See how Oakland Ballet artistic director Ronn Guidi comes out of retirement to save the dance company he loves.

And finally see how Rene Garcia Jr.'s glitter portraits shine.
