Constellation CLT logo

Constellation CLT  is designed to connect visitors of The Mint Museum with the universe of talent in the local community.

In its second year, Constellation CLT is an exhibition series designed to connect visitors to The Mint Museum with artists in our community and to activate the public spaces of the museum. The installations rotate three times per year and can be seen in four places at Mint Museum Uptown: in the entrance; at the foot of the atrium escalator; and on the landings of the Mezzanine and 4th levels.

Constellation CLT is generously supported by The Arts & Science Council.

Installation is on view now

The characters in Dia’s work explore different expressions and elements of African-American culture, without explicitly referencing any one African tradition. The intention, Dia explains, is to recognize the hybrid nature of the culture those from the African diaspora must create in their new lands.
