bringing poems to uptown Charlotte & beyond
The Wall Poems aim to bring poetry to the people, to whom it belongs. We do this primarily by creating poetry murals (anywhere we can) on blank exterior walls and in other public spaces.
The project celebrates NC's literary heritage: All poems are by North Carolina writers. And it features the creative career programs at Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC), whose Advertising + Graphic Design students and faculty have designed all of the murals to date.
The Wall Poems are the first project-in-residence at artspace 525 (525 N. Tryon, at 9th), thanks to Grubb Properties and Charlotte Center City Partners, and we host arts and literature events there and elsewhere.
