“Participatory projects like Moment Mile are a new avenue that involve the Charlotte community in what we are doing at The Light Factory, and more broadly involve others in the art of film and photography,” said Busher, who is a board member for The Light Factory and Charlotte advertising photographer.
Moment Mile will be on view from December 17, 2014 through February 22, 2015 in Mint Museum Uptown’s Level 5 expansion space – raw, unfinished space on the museum’s top floor first used fall of 2014 for The Boombox Project, a pop-up gallery of photos by Lyle Owerko. This new project, which will occupy even more of the space first glimpsed during the Boombox run, will continue the museum’s recent emphasis on contemporary photography as an art form.
The Moment Mile project was supported funded by the Arts & Science Council, John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, and Wells Fargo.
Moment Mile is FREE to the public during regular museum hours – 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Wednesdays, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Thursdays-Saturdays, and 1-5 p.m. Sundays. Museum visitors will receive special admission stickers to visit the Level 5 gallery without paying museum admission fees.
