Joining the Bernie meme craze, we are sharing this photo of Bernie enjoying music in Uptown Charlotte. I thought it was very cool that Bernie put his meme photo on a tee-shirt and “100% of the proceeds go toward Meals on Wheels Vermont”.

contacts globe

Today’s photo shows one of my favorite Cool Globes in Uptown Charlotte. It is called Recycling and is specific to contact lenses. I like this globe because of the beautiful painting and I like the message. Following is an excerpt from the plaque on the globe.

Contact lenses are small enough to be considered a microplastic in terms of pollution .. adding to the hundreds of thousands of tons of microplastic floating in our oceans .. recycling .. through sites like Terracycle.

windowsill

Apples on a windowsill were found in the 4th ward of Uptown Charlotte. I think there is a song by that title. Also, there are numerous internet images of apples on a windowsill. However, I don’t know why this would be done. So I googled the subject. Following are a few possibilities.

  • Storing apples on your windowsill is likely to increase the amount of healthy polyphenols in their skin
  • bring prosperity
  • from the poem “The act of loving” by Karen Ethelsdattar

Today’s photo shows a sculpture found in the Two Wells Fargo Center plaza. I share the photo because of the concept of offering a helping hand. Also, the photo was shared because of my efforts to chose scenes which include people. In the background you will notice a gentleman enjoying the sun. Also, a family is enjoying a meal.

Mint museum

Today’s photo shows a glimpse of an art display at the Mint Museum. Unfortunately we are not attending indoor events. Fortunately, the exhibit is on display through September 6th and my age category will be vaccinated before then.

The Mint Museum website shares the following description of the art we caught a glimpse of:

Brooklyn-based artist Summer Wheat’s Foragers is a monumental work of art spanning four stories and 3,720 square feet in Mint Museum Uptown’s Robert Haywood Morrison Atrium. A myriad of vibrant panels that give the illusion of stained glass fill the atrium’s 96 windows and weave a story of women who labor to build the communities that form the spine of modern society.

Following is a link which contains a video about the Foragers in detail. Also, a link has been included for today’s photo saved on Flickr with the caption Glimpse of an art display at the Mint Museum in Uptown Charlotte.

This solar smart flower was found in the First Ward Park. The flower follows the sun and folds up at night. Their website says the flower folds up and cleans itself nightly. With this intelligence the smart flower makes 40% more energy than traditional solar panels. Plus it looks good.

scream

An art project, in Uptown Charlotte, involves globes painted in different themes. The globe, at the Blumenthal Art Center, shows a reproduction of the famous Scream painting. In my opinion the scream is an accurate depiction of 2020.

Following is a link to a Wikipedia article of the Scream. Also, a link has been included for today’s photo saved on Flickr with the caption Art found in Uptown Charlotte.
