Things to Do in Charlotte NC This Week: Charlotte Art Weekly #42


The Most Creative Events of The City Mentioned in the 42nd Edition of the Charlotte Art Weekly.

Apart from the visual delight, a work of art can inspire the observer in myriad ways. This virtue of art is what makes it significant and relevant in the lives of people. It inspires, it enriches and it enhances the perception of the individual. The city of Charlotte has a lot going on that can enrich each one in a substantial way. Give the local creators of Charlotte a chance to take you on an artistic journey throughout the week and know more about them through subscribing to our Charlotte Art Weekly.

The 42nd edition of Charlotte Art Weekly is dedicated to American songstress, lyricist, musician, and philanthropist Eunice Kathleen Waymon popularly known as Nina Simone, who contributed in the genres of classical, blues, jazz, R&B, gospel, folk, and pop. The artist wanted to be a pianist at an early age and thus decided to apply at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, where she was rejected due to unrighteous racial discrimination. She started working in a Nightclub to play ‘cocktail piano’, where she eventually developed a knack as a jazz vocalist. With more than 40 albums in her repertoire, the four-time Gramm nominee’s most popular tracks are titled as ‘I Love You, Porgy’ and ‘I Put a Spell on You’, ‘I Got It Bad & That Ain’t Good’.
