Light Rail Extension Preparations Begin on Campus
The CATS Blue Line Extension project, managed by the City of Charlotte Public Transportation Department, continues around campus and toward Center City. Recently, preparations for the light rail to swing onto campus have begun.
Trees across from Miltimore Hall are being removed to accommodate rail tracks and the station that will serve the University community, when it opens in mid-2017 (based upon the current construction schedule). Once the campus station opens, University leaders anticipate re-planting trees where possible, without obstructing the rail lines.
Once the UNC Charlotte Main Station opens, members of the campus community will be able to reach UNC Charlotte Center City in approximately 20 minutes, while avoiding traffic congestion and additional parking costs. Click here for more information about the project.
Gallery to Display Works by Local Printmaker
"Passages," an exhibit featuring work from local printmaker Adrian Rhodes, will be displayed through Tuesday, Oct. 21, in the Student Union Art Gallery. A free reception with the artist will be from 5:00 - 7:00 PM, Thursday, Sept. 25.
Artwork in the exhibit explores internal conflict as reflected in the tension between rigid structural forms and organic, intuitive mark making.
"I am interested in studio practice as a way to question-I am interested in the act of making," said Rhodes. "I don’t try to illustrate an idea, rather I let process guide the piece and find meaning in the method used to create it."
