Shine A Light When It’s Gray Out


Mar 3, 2018 to Apr 7, 2018
10:00 AM until 06:00 PM

This event occurs weekly, on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.


Fine artist Stephen Wilson's newest series Shine A Light When It’s Gray Out is being shown at Charlotte’s New Gallery of Modern Art from March 3, 2018 to April 7, 2018 during regular business hours. With installations at Nordstrom SouthPark as well as galleries and museums across the United States Shine A Light marks Wilson’s most anticipated series to date. Central to Shine A Light are Wilson’s unique signature creations - hundreds of butterflies composed of as many as 100,000 embroidered stitches each. The stark contrast of their flight against a dark canvas speaks to his message of finding inspiration and communal interconnectedness during our society’s darkest hours. Inspired by Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton, private conversations with Brunello Cucinelli, and the birth of Wilson’s first child, Shine A Light When It’s Gray Out is a gorgeously detailed, physical manifestation of love and positivity.
