Creative Kids’ Woven Culture art project set to be unveiled this week

This Thursday, Museums and Cultural Affairs Department will unveil the public art project called Woven Culture that is located at the top of the Carolina Bridge.

The new artwork produced by Creative Kids was incorporated in the bridge that runs from Alameda Avenue to Franklin Drive and takes traffic over railroad tracks and the Franklin Canal.

Creative Kids is a nationally-recognized, local non-profit art organization that is dedicated to providing a high-quality development program utilizing the visual arts to empower youth. Area youth worked with professional artists to create this piece.
