Local Bars Help You Get in the Mood For Professional Networking

BY: Mila Pantovich | 2013
Networking isn't always easy, especially if you're shy, but it's a necessary evil for any young professional trying to get ahead in their chosen career. However, figuring out how to go about networking can be the worst part. How do you know what types of places are the best spots for quality career bonding? Well, if you live in Charlotte, NC, Elevate Lifestyle has done all the homework for you and compiled a list of the best bars for networking. Selwyn Pub is apparently known for its fantastic patio room that is set apart from the noisy main room, with couches making socializing easy and comfortable. Whisky Warehouse boasts some pretty great specials so you don't have to spend much buying your new contact a drink, and also has a conversation-friendly restaurant portion. Also on the list is Gin Mill (where there are dart boards and a shuffleboard table), Brazwells Pub (which attracts a good mix of ages 20 to 40), and World of Beer (which hosts Social Media Day and has plenty of seating).

Sculptor Richard Hunt Chosen To Represent Public Art Inside Romare Bearden Park

BY: Sara Cardoza | 2013
Chicago-based sculptor Richard Hunt was honored when he was selected to serve as the public artist for Charlotte North Carolina’s Romare Bearden Park. Hunt, who has been working as an artist since 1955, has been honored with more than 100 commissions across the U.S. and has also been the recipient of several prestigious fellowships including the Guggenheim, Ford and Tamarind. In 1971 Hunt, alongside fellow artist Romare Bearden, became the first African Americans to have solo exhibitions inside the New York Museum of Modern Art. The 5.4 acre urban park was inspired by the work of artist Romare Bearden, who grew up in the Charlotte area of North Carolina, utilizing the theme of memory to create a space that is inspirational and interactive. Hunt’s large-scale sculpture will be installed in the “Third Ward” area of the park and has been tentatively titled Memory Place, crafted from stainless steel. Evoking Bearden’s own artistic practices, Memory Place will call forth incarnations of the Eiffel Tower, churches, and elements of land and water. Having graduated from the Art Institute of Chicago in 1955, in addition to the fellowships, Hunt was also ppointed by President Lyndon Johnson as one of the first artists to the governing board of the National Endowment for the Arts and in 2009 was honored with the International Sculpture Center’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
