Latest Blumenthal Public Art Installations: Intrude – Bunnies In The Park & Of Earth And Sky


The Bunnies are back in Uptown Charlotte!  And they are even better this year in their new home at First Ward Field, made possible by Levine Properties.  The Bunnies made their first appearance in 2019 during Charlotte SHOUT!

The installation is called INTRUDE and is created by Australian artist Amanda Parer. The Bunnies are ready to make visitors smile, inspire and offer an amazing backdrop for photo ops.  There was even a wedding last week in front of them!  Artist Elizabeth Palmisano and musician Krystle Baller held a flash wedding in front of the Bunnies on September 29th:

Of Earth And Sky

Take time this week to wander thru the city of Charlotte where you’ll find tokens of inspiration and poetic reminders of hope. This gentle experience, perfectly titled, Of Earth and Sky, is a large-scale installation of poetry, ideas and statements curated and installed across multiple locations in uptown Charlotte, forming a temporary sculpture trail through Center City until October 31, 2021.

To create these installations, over 200 local poets, musicians and writers submitted their thoughts, hopes, frustrations and revelations about the previous year, a time of worldwide suffering, uncertainty and change.

Of Earth and Sky creator, Luke Jerram has collaborated with Charlotte artists to create a chain of art that is equal parts outdoor sculpture and poetry.

Seek out the gigantic poetry murals in parks and public places across the city, finding inspiration in the words and perhaps discover new locations throughout a city that you call home.
