Lowe’s has provided the pre-lit Christmas trees and assorted decorations for the artists to use in their creations. 

“ArtPop Street Gallery is thrilled to partner with our friends again at Center City Partners to promote and commission local artists to bring joy to Uptown through decorating trees for the holidays… 
Local artists of Charlotte, the Triad and Atlanta regions will be creating traditional as well as uniquely decorated trees for all to enjoy!”
