Things To Do In Charlotte NC : Charlotte Art Weekly #22

The 22nd Charlotte Art Weekly is Here to Guide you With Best of the Events in the City


Our heart cries when we see people facing atrocities across various geographies, and today we pray for the victims of Texas Church Shooting. A massacre that has left more than 26 people dead and thousands of families shaken and devastated with the effect of these hideous activities. But, even when the world is getting uglier every day, we will not stop celebrating creativity. Because the people who are willing to create a devastated structure around our neighbourhood aren’t taking a day off, then why should we? So this week we bring you an array of creative events from fields of visual art, literature, photography, theatrical, and comedy through our 22nd Charlotte Art Weekly.

This week’s CAW is being kicked off with the inspirational life of Caleb Bradham, an American pharmacist who is renowned for inventing the soda pop drink Pepsi. Born in Chinquapin, NC Bradham invented the recipe of Pepsi Cola, which was initially named as Brad’s Drink, at his own pharmaceutical company called Bradham Drug Company. While running his company, he was a chief part in various banks, financial institutions and even in governance but the company soon declared bankruptcy after the sugar price augmented during the World War I. We remember him for the legacy of pop drink that created a pop culture.
