ArtBreak at Levine Center for the Arts

Museum
TAKE AN ARTBREAK & TOUR A MUSEUM DURING THE NOON HOUR ArtBreak tours are free, 30-minute guided tours each third Thursday of the month at Mint Museum Uptown, the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, and the Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture. Whether it’s an introductory experience for a first-time visitor or a deeper cultural experience for those already familiar with Levine Center for the Arts institutions, the 30-minute tours will provide a brief but focused encounter with art for people who have a limited amount of time — and will allow time to grab lunch as well. Visitors can choose one of the three museums for each date, and experience a tour structured around a common theme reflecting the nature of the permanent collections or special exhibitions on view. (Each theme lasts for three months — enough to experience all three institutions!) Support is provided by the THRIVE Fund, established to provide financial stability to Charlotte’s cultural sector and currently administered by Foundation For The Carolinas.
