WHY. 

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.

80x80 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.
