The ground floor project at Alta Warp + Weft in Charlotte, North Carolina

Music, Arts, and Culture at Warp + Weft

The Ground Floor Project®

The Ground Floor Project® consists of both ongoing programming – such as acoustic music shows, spoken word events, dance, and a variety of events encompassing local art – that residents have private access to, and some that are open to the community at large to celebrate and enjoy, as well. These types of events are sometimes one night in nature or longer and often occur a few times a month. There are also frequently rotating displays of art (a variety of mediums encompassing painting, light, sculpture, and more) that consistently adorn the ground floor and may also lead up to rooftops.

Not to be confused with a venue, The Ground Floor Project® is a type of propensity-based programming that is part of a larger movement by Wood Partners. This unique programming will be featured at Warp + Weft in Charlotte, North Carolina which aims to create a backdrop for culture, for community, and for powerfully unique and memorable experiences.

Featured Artist

Charlotte artist Todd Stewart created the custom sculpture that stands in Warp + Weft’s backyard activity lawn. STACK transforms the iconic form of smokestacks, architectural features once prevalent to NoDa’s historic industrial landscape, into an exciting, contemporary, interactive sculpture. This piece plays on the area’s industrial roots and combines them with NoDa’s artistic present and future. We hope that you enjoy this piece and interact with this sculpture; be sure to tag #GetWarped #WarpandWeftNoDa
