Charlotte's Art Pop Street Gallery

EXCLUSIVE: Introducing ArtPop Charlotte's Class of 2018 

Let's get it Poppin'

It's that time of year again.

No, not time to sit in traffic to crawl through a racetrack full of Christmas lights, but to celebrate the local artists we'll be enjoying throughout 2018 ... while we sit in traffic.

On November 30, the Charlotte-based arts program ArtPop held its Class of 2018 Artist Reveal Party, and Creative Loafing is the only publication to bring you all 20 works and the stories behind the artists of ArtPop's fifth class while the party is still going on.  Since ArtPop launched in 2014, the program has featured the works of 80 artists on billboards in Mecklenburg and 10 surrounding counties, as well as on news racks in Uptown Charlotte and on digital display screens at Charlotte Douglas International Airport.
