Public Art, Charlotte: 12 reviews and 10 photos
The intersection of Trade Street and North Tryon is the center point of Charlotte and each corner is graced with a statue by Raymond Kaskey. The following is excerpted from charlottecentercity.org:
"The statues are titled "Transportation," "Future," "Commerce," and "Industry." Transportation is represented by a railroad worker holding a hammer in his hand. The figure of a woman holding a child represents the Future of the city. Commerce is symbolized by a gold miner spilling money on the head of a banker. The face of the banker is modeled after Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan. Industry is represented by a woman in a bonnet, symbolizing the mills and early industry of the area. The child peeking from her skirt suggests past child labor."
Address: Trade and Tryon
