About Face CLT Wall of Compassion:
It was created from the more than 2,000 Blessing boxes that were distributed in our area, each to be filled with notes of 100 acts of kindness bestowed. Businesses, schools, places of worship, governmental agencies, the police department, and individuals embraced the project and spent three months spreading blessings through the area.
The Blessing Box Campaign is our current community engagement project to help reveal the unseen and invisible in our community, and encourage individual acts of kindness and compassion as a starting point to help remedy some of our social challenges.
Over 50 different artists will exhibit selected art in the inaugural Inestimable Impact show at Spirit Square. What do these artists have in common? They all work as art educators in Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools. By day they teach art to kindergarten through twelfth graders, leading them from conception to creation in a variety of media including drawing, painting, ceramics, sculpture, printmaking, and photography.
Check for updates on the Facebook event page.
Crawlers can cap their night at Stoke Charlotte’s after-crawl party starting at 9 p.m.
