This video features artwork by James Barnes and Broderick Flanigan, along with their thoughts and commentary during a slide talk held at the library on December 17, 2017. James Barnes is a local artist who loves to draw—at McDonalds, at Starbucks, on the sidewalk, at the library. James carries his work hanging over his shoulder or rolled up in his backpack, alongside his pens. Broderick Flanigan grew up in Athens and has made a life as an artist, mentor, and activist. He advocates for the needs of low-income people in Athens, and he mentors teens with weekly art classes.
