Harvey B. Gantt Center For African-American Arts + Culture

Background

Named for Charlotte's first African-American mayor, Harvey Gantt, the Harvey B. Gantt Center For African-American Arts + Culture celebrates the contributions of Africans and African-Americans to American culture and serves as a community epicenter for music, dance, theater, visual art, film, arts education programs, literature, and outreach.

Designed by renowned architect Philip Freelon, the 46,500 square-foot cultural center is located in the heart of Charlotte's central business district in the area once occupied by the historic Brooklyn neighborhood, the once-thriving center of the black community that was razed in the 1960s.

Docent-led tour during the community exhibition opening of "The Darryl Atwell Collection of African-American Art", "Selections from the John & Vivian Hewitt Collection of African-American Art", "Immortal: A New Series by Miya Bailey", and "Sloane Siobhan: Archetypes of the Subconscious".

We've worked with the Gantt in a creative and technical capacity over the years including website development/management, design, and digital/technical strategy. We've guided the Gantt through all of its website redesigns and upgrades to date.
