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.

Danielle F.

Danielle is 9 years old and has been a member of the Malon D. Mimms Club for three years.  Her favorite activity is drawing and coloring in the art room, because she likes being creative.  She says that BGCMA taught her how to use a computer, helped her become a better student and improve her grades, and helped her find the courage to overcome her shyness and use her voice.  To her, the BGCMA means happiness.
