This week on the Northeast Newscast, managing editor Paul Thompson talks with Kansas City Art Institute Assistant Professor of Illustration - and architect of the Scarritt Mural project - Hector Casanova. Casanova discusses his relationship with the Historic Northeast; the genesis of the mural project at Scarritt Elementary; what it felt like to have the project defaced over the summer; where he and his students will focus their artistic talents next; and how Kansas City's embrace of the artistic community can lead to community growth and economic development. If you've followed the work of Casanova and his students over the past few years, this is an episode you won't want to miss.
