Experience Art in South End
The Only Neighborhood That Doubles as a Canvas.
For the Instagram-obsessed or the fine art lover, public art is a signature feature of South End’s landscape with a vast array of art in all forms: fine art galleries offering everything from the realist to the experimental, colorful public murals, larger-than-life installations on the Rail Trail and dozens of studio spaces where artists and artisans dream and create. Check out all of the ways to experience local art in South End:
South End Interactive
South End Interactive is an interactive art tour where viewers can scan a QR code with their cell-phone camera and watch a video of the artist, generate site-specific face filters, and explore a 3-D model of the piece. Currently, you can interact with 10 South End murals and learn the stories hidden behind the artwork, told by the artists themselves.
Art Walks CLT curates self-guided art tours in different neighborhoods around Charlotte. Learn more about neighborhood art by taking an Art Walk in Upper South End, Lower South End, Gold District, and Tremont area.
First Friday Gallery Crawl
First Friday Gallery Crawl celebrates local art every first Friday of the month, as galleries stay open late with special receptions, live painting, music, and more.
