ImaginOn + The Mint Museum

Co-developed by The Mint Museum and the Public Library of Charlotte & Mecklenburg County, Art Under Construction is a display of interactive art tailored for families. The exhibit encourages children to play freely with the objects on display. It runs from March 2nd through May 10th at ImaginOn.
Engaging families with art museums has become a national trend. This article from Tuesday's New York Times highlights efforts at The Mint Museum along with museums at Yale University and in Fort Worth, Texas.
With more families living Uptown, we can expect the emerging Mint Museum campus on South Tryon Street to be a regular neighborhood destination. Thanks to Andrea Collins at The Mint Museum for the information!
