Open to fans of Sue Monk Kidd's The Invention of Wings. This pre-Civil War story presents two extraordinary women: one an urban slave descended from Fon people of western Africa; the other a planter-class Charlestonian who evolves into a Quaker abolitionist and feminist. See selected works of art that help bring to life the historic events and social customs depicted in The Invention of Wings.
The Young Affiliates of the Mint (the "YAMs") are announcing the artists selected by the jury panel for their second annual art show, GENDERED: An Inclusive Art Show. GENDERED will be on view in Mint Museum Uptown's Level 5 expansion space from Friday, June 16, 2017 through Friday, July 21, 2017 open during regular museum hours (please check the website).
GENDERED seeks to create an inclusive arts forum for gender and its common intersectionalities with race, class, sexuality, and identity. The current divisive political climate finds people seeking a means to come together and find a common understanding. The YAMs believe in the unifying force of art and seek to create a safe space of expression and dialogue. GENDERED is a group exhibition featuring twenty-four artists from across the country and representing a variety of viewpoints through diverse mediums that invites viewers to join the conversation.
Art, food, and wine all in the same place for you to enjoy! Join us for this brand new version of Taste of the Mint that features a new Charlotte restaurant.
