Art Break Tours

The Mint Museum, in collaboration with the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art and the Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture, provides Charlotte with FREE lunchtime tours. Visitors can choose to visit one of the three museums for each date, and experience a tour structured around a common theme.

Whether it’s an introductory experience for a first-time visitor or a deeper cultural experience for those already familiar with Levine Center for the Arts Institutions, the tours provide a brief but focused encounter with art for people who have a limited amount of time.

Art Break Tour Schedule

Every third Thursday of the month
Noon–12:30 PM.

This tour is free and open to the public thanks to the support of the THRIVE Fund.

Ever wonder why tea leaves were once kept in locked caddies?  Or why a citrus on the table indicated wealth?  Learn these answers and more in a monthly 60-minute Art of Dining tour at Mint Museum Randolph. This tour takes visitors through the Portals to the Past galleries, the museum’s noted collection of late 17th through early 19th century ceramics.  Tour guides will ‘set the table’ for conversations about the design, production and use of selected pieces.
