Uptown Girl

My ArtPop image, Beauty Is Here Because I Am Here, is now an Uptown girl. See her on the news rack at 5th and North Tryon Streets in front of The Capital Grille (Charlotte, NC).

Many thanks to the Arts & Science Council, Adams Outdoor Advertising and the Charlotte Center City Partners for this opportunity.
