Weekend Wonders: Poetry graffiti in Uptown

Posted By on Fri, Apr 5, 2013 at 1:03 PM

I stumbled upon a Facebook page this afternoon that's got my inner poet beaming: The Wall Poems of Charlotte. A team of artsy people, including mixed media artist Amy Bagwell, have gotten together to tag exterior walls of Charlotte with poems written by North Carolina writers. Here's the first one they've completed:

The designs are courtesy of CPCC graphic design students, and painted by mural artist Scott Nurkin.

Gah. Creativity is bleeding into the bricked cracks of Uptown Charlotte. I. Love. This.
