Queens of Catawba

Location: Concourse B, Gate B7

Artist Statement: “As the Queen City grows, we look to cherish those that came way before us while embracing residents rooted here for generations just as much as the city’s many transplants. Whether passing through or coming home, these women serve to remind us of the rich history of the Charlotte area and also to note the cultural heart beat that thrives here.”


We Are All on The Same Plane

Location: Concourse B, Gate B10

Artist Statement: “The mermaid symbolizes love and overseas travel as the maternal figure that welcomes and embraces us as we head to our destination. As a goddess from sea to shore, she greets visitors and locals alike with open arms making all travelers feel at home in Charlotte. No matter the distance from where we come or go, we coexist as humans (or spirits) on this same plane(t).”

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