This year, our signature ball will be a celebration of performance arts in our community with some surprises in store. Come dance the night away to live music, dine on heavy hors d'oeuvres, and delight in the spectacular on the magnificent lawn of Mint Museum Randolph. All proceeds from this event will be used to offset the cost of Charlotte-Mecklenburg student tours at the Mint.
Derby Days is our longest running event - 27 years and counting! Derby Days is the perfect way to enjoy a spring afternoon on the lawn of Mint Museum Randolph. Bring your friends for a day of entertainment that includes live music, lawn games and a large-screen viewing of the Derby, live from Louisville, Kentucky. Attendees arrive decked out in sundresses and seersucker to watch “The Greatest Two Minutes in Sports,” listen to music, and enjoy free beverages and food from top area restaurants.
The Young Affiliates of the Mint announce their 2018 show, "Mainframe," to be held in the Level 5 expansion space of the Mint Museum Uptown from September 14 to October 17. Mainframe is the 3rd annual Young Affiliates of the Mint Art Show, following the 2016 inaugural exhibition, “80x80: An Art Show,” heralded as the best Charlotte exhibition of 2016 by Creative Loafing, and the 2017 art show, “Gendered,” drawing in over 2500 attendees for a politically and culturally relevant exhibition.

Cultural Engagement Events

Events range from social gatherings such as curatorial tours of the Mint Museum's exhibitions and gallery crawls. Past events include a tour of the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, a photography class taught at The Light Factory, and a preview of fashion and trends with Belk fashion designers followed by a private tour of Mint Museum Randolph’s historic costume collection.
