Grant Supports 'KEEPING WATCH ON WATER'

The UNC Charlotte College of Arts + Architecture will receive a $10,000 National Endowment of the Arts (NEA) Challenge America grant to support programming by the Projective Eye Gallery for the "KEEPING WATCH on WATER: City of Creeks" project. The NEA received 347 eligible Challenge America applications and will award 163 grants for a total of $1.63 million.

Organized by the UNC Charlotte Urban Institute and the UNC Charlotte College of Arts + Architecture, KEEPING WATCH is a three-year initiative designed to foster collaboration across disciplines and interest groups to engage the public in local environmental issues. The focus for 2015 is water quality and in particular, urban streams. With some 80 named creeks, most of which originate in Mecklenburg County, Charlotte is indeed a "City of Creeks." These waterways have shaped the development of the city and have played important roles in the lives of its citizens.
