CHARLOTTE—(January 23, 2017)—After an incredibly successful crawl in December, the Uptown Crawl makes its triumphant return to the Tryon Street corridor on Thursday, January 22 with free trolley service to seven stops along the route.
Participating galleries and museums will once again open with free admission at 6:00 p.m. and the crawl ends at 9:00 p.m. Guests may begin the tour at any of the featured institutions, then travel freely between the stops by foot or on a trolley.
This month’s locations are:
Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture, Mint Museum UPTOWN, New Gallery of Modern Art, Wells Fargo History Museum, Sozo Gallery, Projective Eye Gallery @ UNC Charlotte Center City and Goodyear Arts.
Based on attendance numbers from the participating galleries and museums, Center City Partners estimated more than 2,294 unique experiences from the Uptown Crawl in December (a nearly 67% increase in experiences over the October crawl).
“We are thankful Birdsong has agreed to participate as a sponsor again this month and welcome Rock Bottom Restaurant and Brewery as a new sponsor of the Uptown Crawl,” said Kyle Bridges, Director of Uptown Neighborhoods for Charlotte Center City Partners. “Thanks to a generous grant from the Knight Foundation, the free shuttle service will continue for four more months.”
Organizers plan to continue the Uptown Crawl throughout 2017.
