Friday Faves – Volume 15

Hello lovahs.  Its Friday again, the last weekend before Christmas! Next week we will be taking a little Holiday Break from our regular posting, but we wanted to leave you with a few things to see and to do this Holiday Season!!

Public Art Tours!

Have family or friends in town for the holidays??  Getting a little cabin fever in that full house? Bundle up and get out and show them all the great public art that Charlotte has to offer!  You can go to the Charlotte Visitor’s center on Tryon Street and pick up these brochures from the Arts and Science Council and CATS Art-in-Transit, or download them here!

Both programs also have a public art podcast that can be accessed via mobile phone while you ride the light rail or walk through uptown where you can listen some of the artists themselves talk about their work!
