From Oct. 10 to 13, local, regional and international artists are going to paint the town red — and every other color on the spectrum. Charlotte’s first mural festival is an effort to “eliminate the beige” from the city’s vernacular. Sixteen artists will be hitting 14 spots around north and east Charlotte, from alleys in Uptown to tire shops on The Plaza. Artists include Obso, Garden of Journey, Nick Napoletano, Arko83 and Owl.
