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.
“The project is part of the City’s commitment to develop a vibrant regional economy, safe and beautiful neighborhoods and exceptional recreational, cultural and educational opportunities powered by a high performing government,” city officials shared via a news release.
The public art piece is part of the Carolina Bridge reconstruction project that was completed in 2017.
