The Mint Museum’s newest exhibit will pay tribute to Emily and Zach Smith, two patrons of the local arts community.
“Colorblind: The Emily and Zach Smith Collection” opens Saturday, April 28, with nearly two-dozen paintings, lithographs, etchings and drawings collected by the Smiths. The Smiths have dedicated themselves to improving the cultural infrastructure of the Charlotte region for more than 30 years, including services on the boards of the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra, Mint Museum, Opera Carolina and Penland School of Crafts.
The exhibit is one of four new additions to the museum’s 2012 events. “Colorblind” will be celebrated at a special event May 3 at 6:30 p.m. at the Mint Museum Uptown at Levine Center for the Arts, 500 S. Tryon St. The exhibit closes Aug. 19.
