Charlotte Art Weekly 14th Showcases the Creativity in Charlotte, America

The Harvey has been clouding over the sky of America since few weeks, and before it vanished the Irma has already started giving Tempest situations to the atmosphere of America. But we salute the spirit of Charlotteans who aren’t taking a day off in giving the city a more enriching and creative experience through these events. With hundreds of events happening within a single week, it becomes a dire situation for us to decide on which one to feature on our CAW list. We respect every event and in case if you are a creator and you are willing to get your event featured in the Charlotte Art Weekly, please log in to our website, register and share us the details about your program. We promise to give your events a mileage and make it reach the right audience.


The Charlotte Art Weekly 14th features content that every Charlotte resident should consume in their milieu. This week our creative inspiration has been borrowed from Reed Sarratt a journalist from America who wrote extensively on the topic of school desegregation. Born in Charlotte Sarratt completed his Bachelors from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and was the managing editor of The Daily Tar Heel, the in-campus newspaper. He began his career as a journalist in The Blowing Rocket and eventually worked with The Charlotte News, Baltimore Evening Sun, Winston-Salem Journal, and Twin City Sentinel and later became the head of Southern Newspaper Publishers’ Association Foundation and director of the Southern Newspaper Publishers Association. He has edited books on journalism and is honoured by the fraternity through a mention in the North Carolina Journalism Hall of Fame.
