Seven years ago Mark Peres founded the nonprofit Charlotte ViewPoint as a low-fidelity PDF with the goal of elevating the local discourse on urban issues, especially as they relate to arts and culture. Today, CV sports a multimedia Web site, popular events like last fall’s A Smarter Charlotte, and A-list local contributors. With original video, on-point reviews, and thought-provoking essays, the site is worth a bookmark for any culture lover.
