Monday, April 17, 2017

UNC Charlotte art student William Lee won a public art commission from the City of Charlotte GovPorch project to create an interactive installation at the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Government Center Plaza on Fourth Street. Lee’s installation, “Resonances,” is made of wood, steel cable, and electrical metallic tubing and is inspired by Gandhi’s concept of communal harmony and by the metaphor of the individual voice within a larger choir. Associate Professor of Art Marek Ranis served as Lee’s mentor in the project.

Lee is a junior from Charlotte who is pursuing a double major in painting and finance, with a minor in art history. His “Resonances” will be on display until June 30.
