Things To Do In Charlotte NC : Charlotte Art Weekly #34


The 34th Charlotte Art Weekly is Featuring Original Creative Events of The City.

There are a lot of things happening in the city of Charlotte currently! The war veterans are being asked to remove the American flag hanging near their home, and the rains are expected to hit the town yet again accompanying with the cold breeze of January. But this portal is not just to talk about the public problems and weather; we are here to help you borrow maximum creative inspiration out of this week. Through the Charlotte Art Weekly‘s 34th edition we will expose you to photography exhibitions, visual art display, musical concerts, theatricals, performing art events, and various creative happenings occurring at your neighbourhood organised by your neighbours. Our motto is to help you get out of the Netflix binge-watching activity and consume more vivid content live.

This week we talk about the celebrated philanthropist and American tobacco and electric power industrialist James Buchanan Duke. He is the founder of Trinity College which was later famously titled as The Duke University. The man along with his brother began humbly with two mules and some old stored reserved tobacco on his father’s farm, and after years of hardship they eventually introduced the world to modern cigarettes and established the Duke Power company. Duke almost donated half of his wealth to The Duke Endowment as a philanthropic activity, which is now used toward education, helping retired pastors, healthcare, and churches.
