Here’s the scoop on an upcoming juried art show organized by the Young Affiliates of the Mint and taking place in the Mint Museum uptown. The best part: ALL ARTISTS are welcome to submit artworks. Submissions accepted between now and March 14 with a $25 entrance fee.
The Young Affiliates of the Mint will host their inaugural art show, 80×80, in The Mint Museum Uptown’s 5th floor expansion space from Friday, June 10th to Saturday, June 25th, 2016.
Works of art shown will be selected from submissions and all artists are encouraged and welcomed to submit their work for consideration in 80×80. Three guest curators known and noteworthy to the Charlotte arts community will jury 80×80.
This show will open a dialogue between artists, unbridled from any overarching theme, content, medium, or geographic parameters, and the Charlotte community in an accessible, yet established space, while mixing and mingling amongst works of art.
There is a noted schism between the museum space, the gallery space and the studio space. With this art show, the Young Affiliates of the Mint Museum hope to bridge that gap to give attendees and participants the medium through which to view this new space and start this new conversation. For those curious about collectorship, designated works in 80 x 80 will be available for purchase.
80×80 will consist of a total of eighty works shown in commemoration of the Mint Museum’s 80th Anniversary as a beloved staple in Charlotte and vital organ of the arts in our city.
The Young Affiliates of the Mint are a diverse group of young professionals promoting and supporting The Mint Museum cultural, social, leadership, and fundraising activities and events. Established in 1990, we’re the premier social arts organization for young professionals in Charlotte.
