Photography of Charlotte NC's Midtown Park on the Little Sugar Creek Greenway, a public park with more than 19 miles of trails and land connectors. Charlotte designed the Sugar Creek Greenway with the goal of connecting neighborhoods, landmarks and activities and increasing the Queen City's pedestrian-oriented activities. The greenway provides environmental benefits such as improved water quality through stream buffering, wildlife habitats and flood control. Photo shows the "Sight Unseen" artwork by Po Shu Wang and Louise Bertelsen at Midtown Park. The gleaming sphere, installed in April 2012, is designed to bring enjoyment of visual art to the sight-impared. The artists blended Braille embossed dots with modified music box readers to create the multi-dimensional pieces, described by the artists as Braille music boxes.
