Brightwalk will be home to several environmental art installations that incorporate themes typically found in the classroom such as erosion, invasive species, water quality and tree restoration as reported in Friday’s Charlotte Business Journal. The project is being led by the McColl Center for Visual Art. The grant program mixes the arts, sustainability, education and community service.
The artists for the Brightwalk program will be supported through grants, including awards already secured from Duke Energy Foundation, Nathan Cummings Foundation, Surdna Foundation and the Blumenthal Foundation. The art installations will weave throughout Brightwalk’s neighborhood, parks, greenway and trails.
