A free eight-week series known as Live at the Mint, 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.
This week, the 90-piece Youth Orchestra of Charlotte will perform a selection of spooky symphonic masterpieces, followed by a screening of the 1982 horror film Poltergeist in the auditorium.
There will also be pop-up makers space where visitors can express themselves and explore ideas inspired by new exhibitions.
