Public Art in Charlotte

Firebird sculture

Charlotte hasn’t always had an easy relationship with public art but here and in cities around the country public art is being added to make places more vibrant. These works can tell the stories of cities and neighborhoods and people while giving more local artists opportunities to participate and have their work showcased. We learn more about what’s happening here with regard to public art from some of the people making it happen.
