Constellation CLT logo

Constellation CLT is a new museum-wide project designed to connect visitors to The Mint Museum with the universe of talent in the local community.

Each year, the work of three different artists from the Charlotte region will be featured in three of Mint Museum Uptown’s public spaces, allowing the public to become familiar with the city’s diverse, every-expanding creative community. Here, you will find a list of artists who have participated in Constellation CLT thus far, as well as an interactive map populated with markers associated with each of the artists, such as their studio location, where they may have works of art on view, and perhaps noteworthy past or future projects. You’ll also discover ways to connect with the artists on social media so that you can see more of their work. Enjoy!

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

Read our blog post about Arko + Owl!

The inaugural exhibiting artists are Arko + Owl, a powerhouse duo who have won notoriety around Charlotte for their street art style and their community-minded approach. Recently, they have been active members of Southern Tiger Collective, a growing corps of street artists based in Charlotte’s NoDa community whose mission is to enhance public spaces with painted murals and elevate Charlotte’s creative class.

They have created a site-specific mural just inside the front entrance of Mint Museum Uptown; look for more of their work at the base of the escalator in the Morrison Atrium; travel up to the Level 2 landing for more; and find still more up on the Level 4 landing.

The completion of their work coincides with the launch of Talking Walls, a city-wide mural festival recognizing local, national, and international artists, October 10-13. Find out more about the festival and Owl + Arko at; the Mint is proud to be a festival partner and site.
