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

Cesar (C.ZAR) Diaz
No feeling can describe the passion I felt playing those drums with my team. Things happened and I ended up quitting (terrible band directors). After that, I basically felt empty for a bit. I knew I wanted to do something with music but I never knew exactly what. Read more>>
Inspiration–I simply want to create the things I wish I could have seen when I was young. Things that aren’t stereotypical, that show nuance amongst under-represented people… As for Art, Marcus Williams is my primary artist and business partner of 18 years. He’s amazing. Read more>>

I believe everyone has a passion and a reason as to why they do what they do. Mine is simple.
