Photo of the iconic Charlotte signs statue/public art located on The Green in Uptown Charlotte. The Green, actually the top level of an underground parking garage, is a tiered outdoor space with a lawn, lush gardens, interactive fountains and abundant public art. Contemporary artist Gary Sweeney, based in San Antonio, created the piece named "Charlotte - The Center of the Known World." The signs point to 11 other areas also named Charlotte. The signs point to the approximate direction of the locales they identify and the distance to each. Photo taken during the 2012 Charlotte Shakespeare Festival. ..
