On June 7th, @theartisanspalate is hosting, in collaboration with @shoppersonal and @brand_the_moth , an experience in artful expression to celebrate community and the arts in Charlotte! You've got to hear about this!
Join us for an evening in the McGill Rose Garden enjoying beautiful works of art, music, food, refreshments and more, all to benefit Brand the Moth and the McGill Rose Garden. Tickets can be purchased here, and include heavy hors d'oeuvres, beer, wine and specialty cocktails.
Brand the Moth is a nonprofit organization creating community-based public art projects while providing support for local artists and creative education programs in the Charlotte area. Each public art installation is designed and created with direct community involvement in order to engage those closest to and most impacted by the project location. Public art not only beautifies and uplifts an area, but also fosters creative discussion and healthy expression by making art more accessible to all. Involving the public directly in the art-making process furthers local engagement and captures the unique perspective, lives and history of the area. Brand the Moth community murals can be seen at the 16th and Tryon Street underpass, McGill Rose Garden, Solstice Tavern as well as first-time muralist projects in The Gold District.
McGill Rose Garden is a living work of art, nestled in an intimate urban setting that links Charlotte's Garden District and Historic/Arts District. Each year, this public garden draws visitors from around the country and even some foreign countries to enjoy more than 1,000 rose bushes and other plants and native North American herbs. McGill Rose Garden is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that was designated as an All-American Rose Garden in 1998 (one of a few in North Carolina), this jewel in the heart of Charlotte is a welcome retreat and located just a few minutes from Uptown. It also provides a popular setting for celebrations and events.
UMAR is a nonprofit that provides vocational, residential and cultural enrichment opportunities to adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. UMAR Arts Center on S. Tryon offers fine-art vocational services for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Artists enjoy in-studio classes, field trips, guest artists and more as they create unique pieces sold and shown in galleries and shows across Western North Carolina. McGill Rose Garden is a partner of UMAR Arts where participants help care for the gardens and are allowed the space to create art outside of the UMAR studio. Individual participants are also encouraged and supported by the garden in their own creative gardening ventures, including Seans Topiaries & Creations, an art topiary and herbs small business run by UMAR participant Sean.
