TASTE OF THE MINT | GENDERED
Taste of the Mint combines forces with the YAMs this month to showcase their new pop-up art show on the Mint’s 5th floor expansion space, GENDERED: An Inclusive Art Show. The tour will be led by Adam Justice, Assistant Curator of Modern & Contemporary Art at the Mint with small plates and wine provided by Halcyon, Flavors from the Earth.
GENDERED seeks to create an inclusive arts forum for gender and its common intersectionalities with race, class, sexuality, and identity. The current divisive political climate finds people seeking a means to come together and find a common understanding. The YAMs believe in the unifying force of art and seek to create a safe space of expression and dialogue. GENDERED is a group exhibition featuring twenty-four artists from across the country and representing a variety of viewpoints through diverse mediums that invites viewers to join the conversation. The featured works of art were selected by a panel of esteemed jurors: Kelli Connell, Ryan James Caruthers, John Edmonds, & Carla Hanzal.
