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.

I started off making jewelry as a side hustle in college. At the time, I had no idea about branding or where to start with building a business, but as I connected myself more with my passion and the more that I created, I found more interest in implementing unique styles like avant garde and editorial fashion. Read more>>

Creativity was what I strived for since a young age, and I was very lucky enough to have so many encouraging people around me. It’s funny the particular pieces of your early work you remeber. Even now I distinctly remeber working hard on a copy of a cover of a book ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom’ in my early school years. Read more>>

I fell in love with capturing everything around me at a very young age. My mom got a point and shoot camera as a birthday gift when I was about 12 years old, but it immediately became my favorite toy. I spent most of my days outside, taking macro photos of nature and anything else I could find! Read more>>

Almost 9 years to the day the universe bestowed upon me, the gift of creativity. My artistic journey began in a self-taught explorative way. My early methodology brought forth paintings that were driven by a desire to unleash years of emotion. Read more>>


From humble beginnings of a small town in North Carolina, from a young child I have always had a relationship with music with my mother being a music teacher for elementary schools and an active singer in our local church. I started producing beats around age 12 when my mom bought me a keyboard for Christmas. Read more>>

VanguardRep was formed by Sam and Liz Ross, Matthew Burgos, and Elisa Blandford in Los Angeles in 2008 and produced award-winning new works and Shakespeare adaptations out there. VanguardRep isn’t a 6-show-season kind of company–we develop new works and adaptations. Read more>>

I was fascinated by the idea of creating space within a frame onto which narrative structures played out This “can-do” attitude with respect to production was to leave an indelible impression when I began to gravitate to photography. Read more>>

I have always been interested in art as small as I can remember. The reason how it sparked my interest was because of cartoons. The fact that people can create their own world with no rules and guidelines have always been so cool to me. Read more>>

My work revolves around identity and social issues. I am also a new mom and learning how to navigate doing both (motherhood and art) while also still working a full time job. I wish to be an advocate for other mother artists, and an example for being able to do it all and have it all! Read more>>

Everyone has a defining moment of what exactly they want to do with their lives and it is then up to them to go in that direction. Mine happened to be in the winter of 2014 at Goodie Hack, a 48-hour hack-a-thon pairing creatives and techies to Nonprofit and Civic organizations in the Atlanta Community. Read more>>
