“Connect with Culture Day is about providing residents across Charlotte and Mecklenburg County with access to high quality arts, science and history programming close to home and multiple opportunities to sample what the cultural community has to offer,” said ASC President Robert Bush. “Everyone deserves to experience arts and culture regardless of where they live or what they can afford. ASC’s 3rd annual Connect with Culture Day is one way of making our cultural community more accessible.

In addition to the exhibits, workshops, and activities, there will be a “Taste of the World” event at the Charlotte Museum of History featuring Lang Van, La Shish, Mama’s Caribbean, Las Delicias Bakery, Midwood Smokehouse, and more.
