Here’s the perfect way to take flight on an exploration of the Rail Trail into South End — take a photo standing in front of “Wonder Wings.” The nearly 7-foot-wide wings are part of #SouthEndBlooms, a weekend series of pop-up art installations and activities through mid-June.
The “Wonder Wings” are fiber art constructions, crocheted by local creatives Ashley Jane McIntyre and Kelly Rose Zimmerman, both members of CRAFT CLT, a collective of artists “connecting the textile arts community through history, skill-building and local partnerships.” The wings took over two weeks to create.
The wings are installed at “Edna’s Porch,” bright yellow swings just off the Rail Trail on E. Carson Street, kitty-corner to Midnight Diner.
#SouthEndBlooms is sponsored by South End and Charlotte Center City Partners and managed by Charlotte Is Creative. Installations (or “Blooms”) range from visual art to floral art, musical performances, dance, henna art and more. Find a line-up of this weekend’s activities here.
