Thought-Provokers: Midtown

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 Midtown that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

Winston Fulbright

I never considered myself an artist. As a kid I absolutely hated arts and crafts. Nothings sounded worse to me then having to color or cut and paste some stuff together. I hated it. I did though like being with my friends and creating things. Read more>>

With Pianos for Peace, I was able to give back to my community while doing what I love most, creating art.

Leigh Huddle

I had no intention of becoming an artist when I grew up. I actually didn’t have any long-term ambitions until I decided to pursue art full-time. I was always just content with drawing as a hobby. I did it nearly every day, and was usually considered the “artistic” one in my class. Read more>>

I started taking classes in Fine Art and was introduced to the aura and authenticity that painting holds, and there was no turning back. I transferred to the Savannah College of Art and Design where I received a BFA and MFA in painting. Read more>>

Maneen Mehta

I had been drawing ever since I could remember. All of the tv shows and movies I watched inspired me. When I was in school, the margins of my notes were filled with hundreds of doodles. With the internet, I was able to learn even more. Read more>>
