Where Are We In CLT?by Porter Metzler on April 3, 2020
We miss our daily mural hunting sessions. So, we’ll have to settle for looking through all of our old pictures of Charlotte’s gloriously painted walls. One of our favorites in our Camera Roll is this beautiful piece by Charlotte artist Georgie Nakima. The mural can be found in Charlotte’s east side in East Town Market. Georgie describes the work as a piece of “creative placekeeping.”
“Creative placemaking is about making a place. But, this has already been made. Creative placekeeping is honing in on what’s been here — the history and also the cultural impact,” she says.
