Path of Portraits

Path of Portraits

Temporarily off display. Will return shortly. 

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. Each portrait portrays a figure (or figures) from Charlotte's history who is under-appreciated, under-studied, or otherwise overlooked.

Working with Charlotte Is Creative and four local artists, the Museum commissioned the first four portraits in the series in Spring 2021. Since the 2021 festival, the Museum has added three more portraits, with one more planned for June 2023.

Featured Subjects and Artists:

  • George E. Davis, painted by Ricky Singh
  • Ishmael Titus, painted by Mikayla Binter
  • Nance & Child, painted by Abel Jackson
  • John Schneck, painted by Kalin Davone
  • Sarii, painted by Alex Osborn
  • Theresea Clark Elder, painted by Art Rogers
  • John Lawson, painted by Lucy Phung
  • J. Charles Jones and JCSU Students Leading the Charlotte Sit-Ins Movement, Taylor Turner

The project is funded in part by the Arts & Science Council.
