Ticketed Event: $35 members, $50 non-members

Viva Moschino curator tour
Mint Museum Uptown, 500 South Tryon
12:00-12:20 p.m.
FREE after exhibition admission

In an effort to encourage attendance at all Levine Center for the Arts institutions, new efforts like 20 minute curator tours have been instated. We recommend this one of the new Viva Moschino! show; we imagine a quick rundown of the highlights and enough time to instagram once or twice!

Mccoll Center Open House & Jewelry Jubilee
McColl Center for Art & Innovation

We love a good Open House night at the McColl Center. This Friday evening’s event takes the place of Palate to Palette but it’s now free and there will be a great jewelry market featuring work by Kate Allen, Eliana Arenas, Claudia Griffin, Anne Fiala, Chelsea Arthur, Tara Locklear, Tabitha Ott, Katie Poterala, Laura Wood, Anna Johnson, and more. Stephen L. Hayes and Ivan Toth Depena will have work on view in the 2nd and 3rd floor galleries, and Anne Lemanski’s show SIMULACRA will remain open on the first floor.

Reception for Elizabeth Turk: Shell Mandalas
New Gallery of Modern Art, 435 South Tryon, Suite 110
5-8 p.m.

While Elizabeth Turk is based out of New York and LA, she has strong ties to Charlotte: she is a McColl Center alumni Artist-in-Residence and she has work in the collection of the Mint Museum. Elizabeth Turk is also known as a sculptor, but has recently completed this new body of work, composed of large square prints of x-rays of seashells and rocks. They are quite elegant!
