Rural Voices and Visions
Not far from booming Charlotte, much of North Carolina’s southern Piedmont remains rural. Originally created by Gabriel Cummings, this exhibit explores Gaston County’s Stanley Creek area, Eastern Catawba County, Western Rowan County, the Uwharrie region, and the characteristics that set these communities apart from their sprawling neighbors. Looking at the faith, agriculture, and diversity of these communities as well as the forces that threaten to disrupt them, Rural Voices and Visions invites visitors to appreciate North Carolina from a different perspective.
