Thought-Provokers: College Park

Atlanta has always had an artistic soul.  The culture and heritage of our city, like most great cities, owes a tremendous debt to the arts community.  Supporting local art is something we care deeply about and we’d like to do everything we can to help the local arts community thrive.  Unfortunately, too often media attention is monopolized by corporate interests and tabloid gossip – but culture doesn’t come from a focus on celebrity breakups it comes from a focus on the arts.

Below, you’ll find some incredible artists from in and around College Park that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

My story differs quite significantly from many other artists. A lot of renowned artists, either modern artists or historical figures, were given the advantage of a privileged background and they were also provided with artistic training from a very young age. Read more>>
