Immersive Art Exhibit ARKO & The MOON Open In Noda Through January 29

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (News Release) – ARKO & the MOON is a fully immersive art installation that blends the imaginative worlds of local artists Arko and Luvly Moon. Noda is home to Arko & the Moon until January 29.

Located inside Flux Galleries on 15th St, visitors have the opportunity to step inside a fully built-out world, where they can interact with and explore a fantastical universe. For a full sensory experience, guests are invited to slip off their shoes and only wear socks or the provided booties before entry.

“We are especially thankful to Flux Galleries for providing local artists with a space to have the freedom to express themselves and share their visions with the community,” mentioned Luvly.

Arko and Luvly Moon are local mural, sculpture, and installation artists who focus on recycled and repurposed materials to create work.

“That’s part of the fun of it, transforming it into treasured pieces of art that make people smile,” says Arko.

“This immersive exhibit is inspired by the thought of being able to step into an artist’s brain. Thanks to the right timing, funding, and space – Arko and I were able to construct a world based on this inquiry. The world features our similar color ways, but a blending of our two individual worlds,” says Luvly. “Most of the work we create comes from discarded scraps and things we pick up on the side of the road. That’s part of the fun of it, transforming it into treasured pieces of art that make people smile,” says Arko.
