Art. Culture. Community.

This fun and engaging series for adults promotes unique connections between art, culture, and community.

Explore the wonderfully weird “Funk Art” movement in the special exhibition Beyond Craft: Decorative Arts from the Leatrice and Melvin B. Eagle Collection. Watch potters strut their stuff with wheel-throwing demonstrations, and enjoy an evening of gallery talks, live music, and more!

  • 7 p.m. – “Funk Art” Gallery Talk with Assistant Curator of Craft + Design, Rebecca Elliot
  • 6 – 9 p.m. – FREE admission into the Beyond Craft exhibition
  • 6 – 9 p.m. – Pottery demonstrations with Charlotte artists Amy Sanders and Adrienne Dellinger
  • 6 – 9 p.m. – Live music by jazz guitarist, Chris Jones
  • 6 – 9 p.m. – Create your own “Funk Art” at the DIY Studio Station
  • 6 – 9 p.m. – Enjoy drinks from the cash bar

Art Fusions are supported in part by a generous contribution from The Friends of the Mint.
Special exhibition programming is supported by the Mint Museum Auxiliary.
