People can get in free May 18, a Friday, to three of the cultural institutions at the Levine Center for Arts thanks to the Association of Art Museum Directors’ Art Museum Day.
People can get free admission to the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, Harvy B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts & Culture and Mint Museum Uptown. The program is part of a national effort to promote the value of museums in society. This year’s theme is “museums in a changing world.”
“Art Museum Day brings attention to the important role institutions such as the Bechtler, Mint and Gantt Center play in maintaining Charlotte’s vibrant cultural life,” said Christopher Lawing, vice president for programming and research at the Bechtler, in a news release. “This special day of free admittance is a great way to introduce art museums to new audiences or welcome back those who we haven’t seen in a while.”
