Breaking New Ground: The Mint Museum Expansion

April 11, 2009 - October 2010

Mint Museum of Art Randolph

 

 

 

Currently under construction in Charlotte's Center City is a major expansion project for The Mint Museum: a new 145,000 sq.ft., five-story facility that wil combine inspiring architecture with groundbreaking exhibitions. The new building will house the entire collection of the Mint Museum of Craft + Design as well as the American art and Contemporary art collections from the Mint Museum of Art on Randolph Road. Scheduled to open in the fall of 2010, the new facility will include over 36,000 sq.ft. of exhibition space as well as studios, classrooms, an interactive Family Gallery, a 250-seat auditorium, a cafe, a rooftop terrace and the multi-story Robert Haywood Morrison Atrium.

 

The opening of the Center City location will enable the original Mint Museum of Art on Randolph Road to expand its gallery space for the Ceramics, Art of the Ancient Americas and Historic Costume and Fashionable Dress collections, along with European Art, Spanish Colonial Art, Asian Art and Coins and Currency. An expanded research library is also being planned.
