UrbanArt Welcomes Rodney Coleman!
UrbanArt welcomes its newest colleague, Rodney Coleman! A Mid-town Memphis native and graduate of Central High School, Rodney will be working with UrbanArt as a freelance project coordinator, bringing several years of project management experience to the role.
Rodney began his non-profit career during his studies at the University of Memphis. As a student of Professor David Acey, he was a key contributor during the early stages of the Africa in April Festival, and established processes and procedures, which lent to the great success it has become today.
He was one of the founders, and former president of the Hollywood-Chelsea Business Development Corporation, and has worked with other non-profit organizations such as MIFA, the Salvation Army, Memphis Junior Health Careers and Opportunities, and the American Red Cross.
Rodney loves the rich and diverse heritage of our community, and will strive to make Memphis an amazing place with public art and design!
