About the artist:
The featured artist at the brewery this month is Broderick Flanigan. He is and Athens-based artist and activist who embodies several of the core values of CCBC: community, creativity and authenticity. Born and raised in a low-income neighborhood of Athens called the Iron Triangle, Flanigan is deeply committed to providing creative mentorship for children. Flanigan's Portrait Studio, located in the Iron Triangle, doubles as his personal studio and a community space open most afternoons for children to learn about art and chess. With Flanigan's guidance, children work on personal projects, learn about historically important artwork and figures of black culture, and learn important life lessons in creative ways. Flanigan also runs a teen mural program called HARPS (Helping Art Reach Public Spaces), established in 2015, and is co-director of local nonprofit Chess and Community.
