bringing poems to uptown Charlotte & beyond
The Wall Poems of Charlotte are murals that bring poetry to the people, to whom it belongs. 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 design many of the murals.
The Wall Poems are the first project-in-residence at artspace 525 (N. Tryon & 9th), thanks to Charlotte Center City Partners.
The walls will make up a walking tour based on the Leiden Walls in Holland, where 101 poems grace city buildings for residents & tourists to discover & enjoy.
