In residence May 25 - May 29, 2018

Iman is a recipient of a Focus Fellowship Alumni Pay-It-Forward Residency. 


Iman Person serves as WonderRoot’s Arts Innovation Specialist. She is a native Georgian with a background in arts administration, gallery development and arts education. In 2010 she received her B.F.A from Georgia State University in Studio Art and has become a noted figure in the local arts community.  Previously she has held positions at The  City of Atlanta Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs as their Social Media Administrator, and the Interim gallery Coordinator for Gallery 72. She also currently holds a place on the performance committee at Eyedrum Gallery.

Iman’s passion for arts activism comes from her love of working as an advocate and mediator between artists and communities through public experience. Iman believes that, “Art shuts no doors,” and that creativity harnesses the ability to break through diversity and create a new language for change. She also endorses art’s ability to tackle bigger and more controversial topics, while still remaining ever expansive and approachable to all people.

She loves to spend her free time visiting nature sites around Atlanta, going to local art events, traveling, dabbling in poetry and lounging around with her cat at home.
