The first in a series of Arts for All collaborations, Rock the Block, was held March 26 at the Bank of St. Francisville and included West Feliciana Parish businesses and organizations enjoying music by Pete Verbois and Friends, refreshments and fun, said Lynn Wood, of Arts for All.

Arts for All is a nonprofit group of local artists, actors, musicians, writers and poets working together to promote and support the arts in West Feliciana Parish.

“This is our own ‘Live After 5’ event,” Wood said, referring to downtown Baton Rouge’s concert series.

The second Rock the Block event is set for May 2 at Temple Design and will feature local musician Adrian Percy, of The Fugitive Poets.

Wood said Percy builds acoustic musical instruments.

“Arts for All believes creativity is vital to healthy people and to a healthy community, and we work to help others of all ages and at all stages of life learn to make and appreciate art,” Wood said.
