Where Are We in CLT? Rainbow Animal Wallby Tim Miner & Brooke Brown on April 6, 2021
New construction at Camp North End (CNE) is nothing … well … new. But, what is new is how art is incorporated into it.
The work being done along Keswick Avenue across from Free Range Brewing and Goodyear Arts requires a long construction fence that will be up for at least another year. It’s a prominent area at CNE, and the project management team decided it needed an art infusion. And, they called in Charlotte artist Jen Hill to help.
Hill assembled a diverse team of local creatives to paint a “rainbow animal wall” on the construction cloth that runs the length of the fence. The color scheme runs the ROYGBIV spectrum. Thanks to photographer Brooke Brown, we’re able to show you photos of the art and the artists below.
While the work is painted on a “canvas” that is normally discarded after construction wraps, CNE says they’re hoping to repurpose it if it’s still in good condition a year from now.
