The UNDERGROUND Mobile Gallery Fundraiser & Urban Art Show: Cultural Art, Music and Dance are an important part of the African American Community and we must preserve it! It promotes self awareness, pride, self preservation, and a real sense of community! We are losing all of our magnificence to GENTRIFICATION! the UNDERGROUND Mobile Gallery will bring amazing visual, musical, poetic, graphic, and historical works from local and accessible black artist right to Charlotte lower-income neighborhoods. Our goal is to put an interactive Renaissance style art movement right in the heart of the hood, thus giving the youth in Charlotte's at risk neighborhoods (where there's mad talent, but nowhere to cultivate it) the opportunity to work with local artists, musicians, writers, gardeners, and historians on their own turf! "EDUCATION BEGINS AT HOME...BUILD COMMUNITIES, NOT MORE CONDOS!"
