Three… two… one… BOOM! The fourth annual BOOM festival is taking over Plaza Midwood this weekend — Friday, April 26 to Sunday, April 28. BOOM is a three day arts experience that aims to highlight the power of art and the ways it can bring communities together by creating a space for artists and audiences to collaborate. The festival will feature a diverse range of visual artists, musicians, performers and poets who are helping create an explosive wave of creativity in the Charlotte region.
Included in the long list of excellent artists participating in BOOM are two HUG (Helpful, Unfettered Gift) Micro-Grant recipients: Andrea Downs and Nalee Thao. We took a moment to catch up with our them about the work they will have on display at BOOM.
