Artist: Nathan Sharratt

Nathan Sharratt visited Malon D. Mimms Boys & Girls Club last February and was struck by the happiness he saw in our kids and teens and the strong supportive community that the Club provides. Meeting with these promising and talented kids and teens served as a reminder for Nathan of the great personal and social loss associated with the Sandy Hook tragedy. This artwork is intended to honor those who were lost at Sandy Hook and highlight Malon D. Mimms Boys & Girls Club as an example of an organization who is working to create inspired, safe and strong communities for children.

Nathan studied Film and Animation at Pratt Institute and received a BFA in Sculpture in 2011 from the Savannah College of Art & Design. His solo exhibition, Come Inside. Me., was curated by Dashboard Co-Op and received several critical awards. He was named an Artist To Watch in 2013 by The Atlantan, is a Hambidge Fellow, a 2012 visiting artist for the Center For Chemical Evolution, and his work is in the permanent collection of the High Museum of Art and other private collections.

Benjamin M.

Benjamin is 12 years old and a member of the Malon D. Mimms Club.  His favorite activity is playing soccer; he wants to be an architect when he grows up, because he is good at drawing and math.  He says the BGCMA has taught him to be more responsible and mature, and helped him meet new people.  To him, the BGCMA means fun.
