The July crawl marks the beginning of a new, year-long sponsorship from HomeTrust Bank, ensuring Uptown Crawlers will continue to enjoy this anticipated, monthly art event well into 2018. “Art and culture are a vital part of any thriving community, and Charlotte is no exception. Uptown Charlotte is home to a great number of galleries and museums that showcase a broad range of artistic and creative talent. HomeTrust is thrilled to partner with our friends at Charlotte Center City Partners in making these destinations more accessible, in a fun and convenient way with the Uptown Crawl,” said Jeff Mylton, HomeTrust Bank Charlotte, Market President.
Unique to the Uptown Crawl this month is the return of Charlotte Center City Partners’ Piano Parking initiative. This effort places brightly decorated pianos on Uptown’s sidewalks for the public to play and enjoy. The pianos will be near all of the crawl locations starting on Thursday, July 27 and will remain on the street until Friday, August 25 (after the August Uptown Crawl). Piano Parking was made possible by a generous grant by the Arts and Science Council.
