Flanigan’s Portrait Studio Founder Broderick Flanigan is Today’s Honoree

A painter born and raised in Athens, Ga. My journey has taken me from my childhood in public housing and a youthful aptitude for creating to a degree in kinesiology from Georgia Southern University​. An Art Appreciation course and a spiritual awakening rekindled a desire to pursue an art career grounded in a grassroots approach. A commitment to under served audiences, led me to open Flanigan’s Portrait Studio on the Eastside of Athens in the “Triangle Plaza” neighborhood.

​In 2015 I created an outreach initiative called HARPS(Helping Art Reach Public Spaces). A mural arts program for teens was born introducing youth to the hands-on entrepreneurial experience of the art making process. I also foster cultural inclusion and community engagement with a series of events called First Fridays. Non-profits and community leaders come to inform residents about opportunities to become more engaged citizens. I believe that the arts can provide cultural and economic investments whch have a significant impact on under-resourced communities. The goal of my efforts are a sustained collaboration between community partners that create a more equitable cultural landscape.
