Meet ARTvision Atlanta's 2012 team!

Each of our team members have spurred ARTvision to record donations, and we're hoping 2012 is no different. Our thanks to the folks below as well as all of our volunteers.

Will Pollock (Founder, Director & Curator; displaying artist)

Will founded ARTvision in 2006 as a way to honor his aunt, Betsy Weedon, and to create an online platform for artists to express both their creativity and generosity in a single stroke. Since its inception, ARTvision has raised nearly $26,000 for charitable causes. Will is a freelance writer, editor, photographer, musician, columnist and blogger based in Midtown Atlanta.
