Reid Park recently received the Neighborhoods in Creative pARTnership Grant presented by the Arts & Science Council, the City of Charlotte, and the Public Art Commission. The grant enables Reid Park residents the opportunity to create public art that is neighborhood-based, or art that is specific to the neighborhood where the art will be placed. Residents will work closely with local artists to bring neighborhood driven public art projects to life by taking advantage of the over $20,000 awarded through the grant. Reid Park is excited for this chance to bring public art to the community to demonstrate the history of Reid Park and the love residents have for their neighborhood. CHARP graduate student Tara Bengle worked closely with Reid Park to develop and submit the grant proposal. She will stay involved throughout implementation and continue to work closely with Reid Park residents.
