The Place to Be: Concerts in Charlotte 1995-2017

Jun 19 - Nov 22 , 2017 · Knight Gallery at Spirit Square

Daniel Coston

Presented by: Blumenthal Performing Arts

The photos contained in this show are a collection of many days and nights enjoying music, in many places. Large venues, small venues, anywhere and everywhere in Charlotte, NC. For the past 22 years, I have tried to find these places, and photograph them. For this show, I wanted to convey the rich vibrancy and diversity that one can see and hear on any given night in Charlotte. From the legendary artists, to the local musicians that make up the Charlotte music scene. In theaters, clubs, churches and more, big and small. Be they venues that no longer exist, or ones that you can visit tonight, the photos in this show are a reflection of those beautiful sounds, and my efforts to put a visual to the sounds that continue to be, The Place To Be. Wherever you choose to find them.

– Daniel Coston

Daniel Coston is a prolific photographer known locally for his images that have appeared in the Charlotte Observer's Scene & Heard section for nearly fifteen years. This free exhibit is open to the public in the Knight Gallery in Spirit Square.
