In a one-block radius of Uptown Charlotte, you can be immersed in modern art, feel the passion of inspiring global artwork, and explore the many facets of the African-American experience. That one-block destination is the Levine Center for the Arts (LCA), and thanks to the new Levine Center for the Arts Access Ticket, visiting the amazing museums within the center has never been easier or more economical.
The LCA Access Ticket gives residents and visitors the opportunity to experience the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture and Mint Museum Uptown for only $20. Even better, the ticket allows accessto these great institutions for up to 48 hours of the initial entry time. Plainly, that means residents and visitors not only get into all three museums at a discounted daily rate, but they also get an extra day completely free. It is most likely the biggest cultural/entertainment bargain in Charlotte-Mecklenburg.
Currently, the three museums contain not only their private collections, but are hosts to a wide array of exhibits. For instance, Mint Museum Uptown is displaying a fascinating exhibit that explores the use of
salt-inspired/themed/constructed artwork called Return to the Sea: Saltworks by Motoi Yamamoto. Equally impressive, the Harrvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Art + Culture is displaying a generational exploration of the Gullah/Geechee culture of the eastern shorelines of North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida with David Herman, Jr.’s Etched in the Eyes exhibit. Not to be overlooked, the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art has the works of Emilio Stanzani that highlight the era in which he transitioned from representation art to abstract art.
Though all of the aforementioned exhibits may sound like a lot, they only represent a small portion of the permanent and visiting collections at each museum in LCA, and to truly experience them in their entirety, a minimal visit of two days is definitely required. Hmmm, sounds like a good reason to take advantage of the LCA Access Ticket’s perks, doesn’t it?
