Friends Of The Mint
Friends of the Mint, organized in 1965, sponsors educational programs about art given by knowledgeable speakers. The offerings are designed to enlighten and increase an understanding of art in its many forms. Members enjoy trips to other museums, artists studios and galleries. Being a part of the organization is a great way to meet people and make friends.
Friends’ members receive in depth knowledge of Mint Museum exhibits and events.
As part of its mission, the organization contributes to the Mint’s Learning & Engagement department, supporting education and outreach.
Programs are held once a month from September through May. Current Mint Museum membership is required to join. Friends’ dues are $25 per year. If interested, attend a Friends meeting, call 704.337.2031, e-mail, or print and mail the membership application . ( Click here to view bylaws .)
