Temporary art installations you need to know about

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — If you enjoy unique photo opportunities, there are two temporary public art installations currently on display in uptown Charlotte to check out.

INTRUDE

They were a hit during the Charlotte SHOUT! festival in 2019 and now they’re back and bigger! The inflatable bunnies of “Intrude” are currently on display in First Ward Field, which is next to First Ward Park at 301 E. Seventh Street in uptown.

The bunnies can be viewed during the day and at night when they are illuminated through Oct. 12.

“Intrude” was created by Australian artist Amanda Parer.

OF EARTH AND SKY

Find tokens of inspiration and poetic reminders of hope in “Of Earth and Sky,” a large-scale installation of poetry, ideas and statements curated and installed across multiple locations in uptown. You can find the gigantic poetry murals in parks and public places through Oct. 31.

The exhibition was created by Luke Jerram, the creative mind that recently brought “GAIA” to the Queen City – an exhibit that allowed visitors to experience what it’s like to see Earth floating and spinning above you.

There is no cost to visit the art installations.
