CATS held a traveling exhibition of the LYNX Blue Line Extension art proposals from January 14 to February 28 at UNC Charlotte and from March 8-30 at McColl Center for Visual Art. The exhibition offered the public the opportunity to view the proposed works and to learn about the artists.
The exhibition was a presentation of the art proposed by the 16 artists for the 11 stations, walls and bridges, elevators, bike facilities and park and ride lots along the nine-mile alignment. The two locations of the exhibition sit right at both ends of the line, a move to celebrate the joining of these two parts of Charlotte.
At UNC Charlotte, the work was exhibited at the Storrs Gallery, which also houses the College of Arts + Architecture. CATS hosted an opening reception on January 16 to welcome students and the public to view the work. There was also a lecture in which artists spoke to members of a gallery internship class, a group of students especially interested in the public presentation of art.
