Where Are We In CLT? Ballantyne Bulls
It’s been said that Ballantyne is boring. Okay, okay. We’ve said it. But, that was harsh and a load of bulls … well, wait. We’re getting ahead of ourselves.
Ballantyne is home to some of Charlotte’s most playful examples of public art — the three Ballantyne bulls. The next time you’re headed to a chain restaurant or to see a lawyer about estate planning, make time to chill out with three bull sculptures by artist Peter Woytuk. They can always be found lounging in Ballantyne Corporate Park. And, for good reason. At a reported 2,000 pounds each, they’re not going anywhere.
Nestled in the grass with no pedestals, the bulls are approachable. Like the Hugh McManaway statue at Queens and Providence Roads, they don’t mind being dressed up. (PLEASE NOTE: They can get SUPER HOT in sunlight.)
Pro Tip: The bulls are just the beginning. Several sculptures of ravens, also by Peter Woytuk, are scattered throughout the Corporate Park (low AND high). Look carefully and enjoy some bird watching.
