Celebrating Charlotte Arts…virtually Here’s an excerpt:
Today, I should be in Charlotte enjoying the 5th annual BOOM festival, an artist-led presentation of contemporary visual and performing arts, which is supported by Knight Foundation. The 2020 festival was originally scheduled for this weekend, April 17 – 19 and like many events across the country, it’s been postponed until further notice as a result of COVID-19. So, instead of celebrating Charlotte’s arts scene in Plaza Midwood, I’m at home, which I expect is where you are, too.
Being home won’t stop us from celebrating, because now, more than ever, our artists and our communities need to be recognized, celebrated and supported.
