Carolina Lane Creative Intervention

in the block surrounding the Center for Craft (67 Broadway)

[Information gathered from various sources; see addition links at the end]

UNC Asheville is a partner in this community event:
Carolina Lane Creative Intervention is a one-day event with a specific focus: to experiment with unique public art installations, culturally diverse creative activities, potential streetscape changes, and infrastructure improvements in order to gather community feedback and motivate permanent change to take place in a way that satisfies local property owners, business owners, and residents. The Center for Craft and Asheville Design Center view the event as an important step in the development of a community-driven long-term vision for the downtown block defined by Broadway Street, Woodfin Street, Lexington Avenue, and Walnut Street. This event is free and open to the public.

For those who prefer additional text, please read on. While there are several campus arts groups participating, our studio arts department is the focus of this page. Others will be linked at the end:
