community, culture

Event on Oct. 29 features free museum

admission, performances

Fall A&E Guide

Wells Fargo is getting ready to make its

grand entrance into the Charlotte market.

Though a past sponsor of Pride Charlotte, you

didn’t see Wachovia’s name anywhere at the

Aug. 27 event in Uptown. Wells Fargo, it seems,

is here to stay. But,

that isn’t a bad thing.

The new kid on

the block is introducing

itself in various

ways. On Oct. 29,

the bank will help to

present the Wells

Fargo Community

Celebration, marking

the conversion of

Wachovia signs and

banking locations to

Wells Fargo in North

Carolina, as well as

the opening of the

Wells Fargo History

Museum in Charlotte.

The event will transform Center City Charlotte

into a free arts and cultural festival, as well as

provide free Saturday admission,

underwritten by Wells

Fargo, to many of Charlotte-

Mecklenburg’s arts, science and

history institutions.

“We are excited about Wells

Fargo taking the lead on this

important celebration and being

one of their partners,” said Arts & Science

Council President Scott Provancher. “The

Wells Fargo Community Celebration shows

their commitment to the cultural sector and

will provide amazing arts, science and history

experiences that will entertain and educate

thousands of individuals,” said Provancher.

“Plus, with the opening of the Wells Fargo

History Museum, Charlotte’s ‘cultural mile’

along Tryon Street

has gained another


The celebration’s

major highlight will

include free Saturday

admission on Oct. 29

to Bechtler Museum

of Modern Art,

Discovery Place,

Levine Museum

of the New South,

The Mint Museum,

McColl Center for

Visual Art, The Light

Factory and more. A

Voices, Charlotte Chamber

Music, Charlotte Children Choir,
