K(NO)W Justice K(NO)W Peace
On Exhibit at MPBC | May – July
Following the uprising in Charlotte, the Levine Museum of the New South forged partnerships with activists, local police, protesters, emergency responders, faith leaders, and others to create an exhibit that steps beyond the headlines. K(NO)W Justice K(NO)W Peace looks deeply into our past, exposing years of distrust and seeks to lead us into creating creative solutions to longstanding problems.
During the months of May, June, and July, our Church plays host to two outdoor pieces and one indoor piece of art created during the Charlotte Uprising. The three pieces are panels of plywood that were used to cover broken windows from the Hyatt House hotel uptown. Last September, after the windows were broken in the early nights of protesting, the hotel manager put out an invitation to the community to create art on the newly hung plywood. That art, which reminds us to listen, understand, and to work for justice, is now on our campus. We’d love to hear your thoughts – tag your posts #KnowCLT and#MPBC.
