WHY THE

The moth is a symbol of transformation & conviction. We believe that The Arts can transform people as powerfully as they can reinvent spaces. We are determined to uplift our city, wrapping it with color, while simultaneously helping our community and its residents. As a moth is in a stage of metamorphosis and transition, so is our Queen City.

With each project & program we work to ‘brand’ the symbolic notion of the moth, its drive towards the light with the understanding there’s always room to grow & change. One small act can have lasting impact, as one small creature can teach us so much. At initial glance, public art is a direct visual response, but there’s always more to a story than meets the eye. Let’s start the conversation together.

MISSION

Engaging our Charlotte community through public art projects designed for and created with local artists & residents to spark creativity, connection & education while providing support for local artists and fueling our unique art community.

Public art uplifts entire neighborhoods, while fostering creative discussion and healthy expression, making art more accessible and relatable to all. Directly involving community members in the art making process furthers engagement and captures the unique geocentric perspective, story and history in our city.
