Odell P. (Pat) Mitchell is an artist, educator, coach, illustrator and designer. He finished his career in the newspaper business as the Senior Content Manager for the Tampa Tribune in 2008. Since then, he has been inspiring others to use their gifts and talents to improve their community.
“I truly believe that a community’s appreciation of the arts enhances the quality of life of that respective community. Art helps us understand that cultural diversity means that we all are potentially enriched because we can appreciate and celebrate our differences – and our contributions. A cultured community is not limited to or defined solely by any one standard of measurement.”
