Local Street III opens Sunday, Nov. 12 with a free party for all from 1–5 PM. Curated by Charlotte-based artist and teacher Carla Aaron-Lopez (@iamkingcarla), Local Street III is the final installation in the Local Street series created to showcase the talent, diversity, and depth of creatives living and working in Charlotte and the Carolinas.

Expect a live DJ, spoken word by de’angelo DIA (@1518dia) and a performance by Marcia Jones (@marciajonesart), plus works by 60 local artists! Local Street III will feature works by several local artists not previously featured in the series, including Merisa Ari, Komikka Patton, and Valentin Ramirez.

The installation is on view for one week and one week only, Nov. 12–19, 2023, at Mint Museum Uptown, 500 S. Tryon Street at Levine Center for the Arts.

“Local Street has brought together our arts community and changed how we collaborate with each other. I want people to walk away knowing that this community is alive and thriving and no matter where I go, I take my community with me. Let’s hope you get a chance to hop on this mothership with me because I ain’t coming back,” Aaron-Lopez says.
