STAR Gallery exhibition opportunities illustrate the Mint’s efforts to engage the community and cultivate school partnerships.
Metrolina Regional Scholars Academy exhibiting student artists, their families, faculty, and administration enjoyed a reception in new the Uptown STAR Gallery October 11, 2012. The reception celebrated the opening of a K-8 student art exhibition at the STAR (Student Artist) Gallery at Mint Museum Uptown.
This exhibition opportunity illustrates the Mint’s efforts to engage with the community and cultivate school partnerships. A parent, Nilma Amin, noted: “To have an opportunity to…go beyond the confines of the school community and in the presence of the City’s top art museum is a remarkable accomplishment and a memorable experience for the children!”
The Metrolina Regional Scholars Academy is a publicly funded charter school that serves K-8 students in a multi-county area around Charlotte. Their Uptown STAR exhibition will be on display until November 4, 2012.
K-12 student works from Union County Public School’s Weddington Elementary, Middle, and High School are on display in the STAR Gallery at Mint Museum Randolph (generously supported by Harris Teeter). This exhibition features several works inspired by the recent Mint exhibition, Hard Truths: The Art of Thornton Dial, and illustrates how the Mint connects its special exhibitions and collections to schools and the community. This exhibition will be on display until November 4, 2012.
