Honoring All Teachers

Honoring All Teachers

Location: Concourse A, Gate A7

Artist Statement: “I am a Charlotte native and folk artist whose art is inspired by growing up in what was once a rural city. My works are expressions of Charlotte that is forgotten and seldom recognized. My interest is in sharing my art creations with the public is to tell stories of people and places of the City. My artwork includes fabric that has been reappointed from my collection, including feed sack cloth, which was prevalent in the 1930s during the Great Depression.”

Commissioned by the Arts & Science Council and the Public Art Commission in partnership with the City of Charlotte.

Walking Together Children
