The Boombox Project

September 19 - October 19, 2014

Mint Museum Uptown


In association with Chandra Johnson’s SOCO Gallery, The Mint Museum UPTOWN hosts a pop-up photography show in the museum’s Level 5 expansion space.

The Mint Museum is offering the public an unprecedented opportunity to see expansion space representing the next phase of the museum’s future growth by hosting photographer Lyle Owerko’s The Boombox Project. This pioneering pilot program is anticipated to be the first of many future uses for this space that will provide special opportunities for artists, entrepreneurial projects, and community engagement.




SOCO Gallery, opening in 2015, aims to become Charlotte’s home for emerging and established photographers. Founded by Chandra Johnson, the gallery will focus on innovations in the photographic medium, as well as providing a platform for art education and community outreach. This is the second exhibition for the organizers, who exhibited Jimmie Johnson: On The Road in October, 2012.
