Polly Harrison (1946-2007)

Polly Harrison was born on January 4, 1946, in Fulton County and died on September 15, 2007, in Cedartown, in Polk County. Her career exemplifies the truism "one person's trash is another person's treasure," as she often created her works from discarded film, metal blinds, and computer wires.
Harrison studied her craft at the Atlanta College of Art and shared her work with thousands of students, educators, and community groups through the Georgia Council for the Arts. Her fiber work Back Carrying Basket is part of Georgia's State Art Collection.
