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

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 presented by Fifth-Third Bank, and supported by the National Endowment for the Arts.

Andrew Leventis: Contemporary Vanities

On view January 14, 2022

Andrew Leventis is a Charlotte-based oil painter and an assistant professor of painting at UNC Charlotte. He earned a bachelor’s of fine art in painting from the American Academy of Art in Chicago and an master’s degree in fine art from Goldsmiths College, University of London. His work has been featured in Norway at Kunstgalleriet, in London at Matt Roberts Arts, and in Rome at The Venanzo Crocetti Museum.

Over the last two decades, Leventis has explored the value of objects through still-life oil paintings. With his Refrigerator series, Leventis refers directly to the global pandemic, specifically the food hoarding and shortages of spring 2020. He says, “The paintings reflect on the mass panic induced by the Covid-19 virus, and how the idea of “stocking up” became a crucial and even primal response in a notion to survive.”
