The Mint Museum welcomes the next generation of museum-goers to explore, play, and experiment within a creative community of their peers and practicing artist role models.
NexGen MINT empowers teens ages 14 to 18 to create and cultivate artistic experiences in response to The Mint Museum’s engaging collection and exciting special exhibitions.
The program responds to focus group teens’ expressed desire to be part of the museum and learn more about art, careers, and the creative process from inspiring artists.
It’s free to join NexGen Mint. Register here.
NexGen Mint members get free admission to both Mint Museum locations, 500 South Tryon Street and 2710 Randolph Road, for themselves and a friend.
In addition, NexGen Mint members get compensated for parking at Mint Museum Uptown, and get access to a website specifically for members.
Perhaps the most exciting part of this program, however, is the opportunity to interact with internationally known artists and designers, and even participate in workshops with them.
These workshops are free for NexGen members, but require pre-registration. Space is limited.
Here’s what’s coming up. Remember, teens have to first register for NexGen Mint, and then register for the event. Follow the links below for event registration.
