Things to do in Charlotte NC | Charlotte Art Weekly #13


Charlotte Art Weekly 13

The 17th largest city in the USA is not only housing an enormous populace but is also a home to many achievers and creators, who have made the city proud with their creations. Our purpose of featuring one such creator within each of our CAW is to ensure that the town’s living heritage is not concealed but remains completely intact by any means. The 13th edition of our Charlotte Art Weekly is all that you need to suffice your creative needs.

This weeks’ CAW is featuring photography, literature, music, culinary, visual art, performing art, theatricals and film screening events and is representing the image of academician Anna Forbes Liddell, who actively participated in the suffrage movement in NC. After completing her doctorate in philosophy Liddell became a professor of the same subject in Chowan College and then went to teach at Florida State College for Women and Florida State University while heading the Philosophy and Region department and founding the Southern Society of Philosophy and Psychology. The brave Charlottean’s research papers are archived at Florida State University
