About the Instructor
Inspired by sacred design and ornamentation in religious architecture, Molly Rose Freeman paints large-scale public works as an avenue to explore how principles of geometry and repetition can be used to synthesize similar spaces of heightened consciousness within the urban landscape. When Freeman creates public works, she seeks out the distinctive pulse of each space in the service of activating its spiritually transformative properties.
Molly received her high school diploma in Visual Arts from the North Carolina School of the Arts, and in 2010 earned her BA in Creative Writing from the University of North Carolina at Asheville. After several years working from a studio in Asheville’s River Arts District, Molly moved to Atlanta in 2013. She is currently a Resident with The Creatives Project and maintains a studio at the Goat Farm Arts Center. She was recently selected as a 2014-2015 Walthall Fellow through Wonderroot.
Freeman has been involved in arts education programs with MOCA-GA, Emory University, the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, One Love Generation and Turning Sun School. She has painted murals in collaboration with Living Walls: The City Speaks, Fountain Art Fair, the Atlanta BeltLine, and Forward Warrior. Some of her recent clients include the Atlanta Hawks, Indigo Hotels, Strongbow Cider, W Hotels, Typesafe Software and the City of Charleston.
