Join us for a FREE eight-week series known as Live at the Mint, which celebrates Charlotte’s dynamic arts community. Each week will feature a new lineup, from performance art to lectures with leading artists, provocative films to gallery tours with community leaders (and lots of specially-crafted art activities and craft cocktails in between). Every Live at the Mint is an intentionally layered experience that will incorporate the permanent collection and special exhibitions. The result: the Mint will be the place to be on Wednesday nights.
