Saturday evening the Charlotte Art League unveiled their Community Mosaic Project Installation at their South End location. The project, designed by local artists and created by more than 300 volunteers, was two years in the making.
According to the Charlotte Art League, the mural is “composed of over 20 panels, covering 250 square feet, containing more than 1,125 pounds of material, and is the result of approximately 5,000+ volunteer hours.”
The mosaic is on display on the exterior of the Charlotte Art League building in historic South End, and is located on Camden near South Tryon. This facility has been home to the forty-four-year-old art league since 1996.
