Description   EN   

At the corner of Trade and Tryon (at the posted coordinates) sits another favorite of the fantastic public art available in Charlotte. Officially titled "Il Grande Disco" (translates to The Big Disc), locals refer to the large, round sculpture as the Disco Wheel. Created by Italian sculptor Arnaldo Pomodoro specifically for this space in 1974, Il Grande Disco is meant to represent industrial growth.

There are five more Il Grande Disco sculptures throughout the world:

  • Two in Milan, Italy
  • University of Chicago
  • PepsiCo Headquarters in Purchase, NY
  • Darmstadt, Germany

To claim credit for this cache, submit a photo of yourself with the sculpture - bad selfies are always welcome.

Uptown for day 2 of jury duty and out on lunch break grabbing some food and a couple caches! Lots of muggles around but it didn't matter since I was just taking a selfie. Thanks for the virtual!

We were uptown for the theater, and capped our art experience with this. Will upload a picture later.

Found today while taking my daughter around Uptown to take pictures with a black and white film camera for photography class.

I have been meaning to do this for a long time.  Thank you.
