The Dwelle Society. In 1933, Mary Myers Dwelle began to raise funds to relocate the Charlotte Mint building to house the first art museum in the state of North Carolina. In 1996, her pioneering efforts inspired the establishment of the Dwelle Society, with the goal of recognizing loyal donors who commit to leave the Mint in their estate plans, and also to assist the museum in building long-term capacity. This support may be in the form of financial instruments, or through gifts of art, and all individuals who document a planned gift will be welcomed as members of the Dwelle Society.

Donations of Works of Art

Gifts of artwork strengthen The Mint Museum’s ever-growing collection of enriching, transformative art can inspire thousands of visitors for years. To discuss such a gift, please contact the Curatorial Department by email or at 704.337.2046.
