Path of Portraits
Path of Portraits is part of our mission to honor the history of all members of our community and provide a space that encourages visitors to connect with people from the past. Working with Charlotte Is Creative and four local artists, the Museum commissioned four portraits of historic figures in Charlotte history. Each artist painted their respective portrait live at the 2021 African American Heritage Festival, after which the paintings were installed in the Museum with biographical information. Since the 2021 festival, the Museum has added one more portrait by Catawba Nation artist Alex Osborn. The project was funded by the Arts & Science Council.
