It isn’t just new apartments that are popping up around town, art is too! And poetry. They’re called Wall Poems and you’ll find them on buildings and other surfaces. A lot of local artists are working to get more art into public spaces and engage Charlotteans in the process. We meet some of the people behind these unique art installations and find out how they create art that represents the neighborhoods they occupy.
The final showcase for the “Skyline Artists in Residence” at the Goodyear building is tonight, January 29.
