La Vida Latina: 21st Century Life in Charlotte
UNC Charlotte and its Center for the Study of the New South, as part of our partnership with the Levine Museum of the New South, are hosting a panel discussion about Charlotte’s Latino population, engaging the audience in a conversation about the opportunities and challenges Latinos encounter living in Charlotte and the Mid-South. The event will begin at 6:00 PM on Tuesday, Oct. 6 at the Levine Museum of the New South.
The first in a series of community conversations this year that engages the museum’s ¡NUEVOlution! Latinos and the New South exhibit, the series kicks off with a discussion of the complexity of the Latino population in Charlotte and the Mid-South, contrasting the city’s “hyper-growth” for the past 15 years with our long history of Latinos with many different nationalities, cultures, and socio-economic backgrounds coming to our area.
This event is free and open to the public; click here to register.
Rowe Galleries to Feature Work by New York Artists
The UNC Charlotte Department of Art and Art History presents work by acclaimed new-media artists Jennifer and Kevin McCoy. Priests of the Temple 2015 opens in Rowe Galleries on Monday, Oct. 5, with a lecture by the artists at 4:00 PM, followed by an opening reception from 5:00 - 7:00 PM.

Based in New York City and recipients of a 2011 Guggenheim Fellowship, the husband and wife duo have exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, P.S.1, the Museum of Modern Art, the New Museum and in galleries across the United States. International exhibitions include projects at the Pompidou Center, the British Film Institute, the Hanover Kunstverein, the Bonn Kunstverein and the Hong Kong Arts Center. Their work has been reviewed in major news and art publications, including the New York Times, Newsweek, the Washington Post, Artforum and New York and Wired magazines. They have exhibited in Charlotte only once before, at the Light Factory in 1997.
Described by New York magazine as "perennial wizards of little worlds made to look like sculptural panoramas," the McCoys create unique installations that combine sculpture, portraiture, miniature diorama and video projection.
