The Mint Museum Receives a Identifying Our Community SouthWood Grant

In-kind grant will enhance Museum’s roadside signage

The Mint Museum has been awarded an “Identifying Our Community” in-kind grant of signage services by SouthWood Corporation of Charlotte. The $5,000 grant from SouthWood includes the design, fabrication and installation of new signage at the Mint Museum of Art on Randolph Road.

“We are delighted to have been chosen to receive SouthWood’s ‘Identifying Our Community’ grant,” said Executive Director Phil Kline. “The new signage will provide the Mint Museum of Art with a much improved roadside sign reflecting our current design initiatives.”

The timing of the signage is ideal, as the collections at the Mint Museum of Art will be reinstalled following the opening of the Mint Museum Uptown in October 2010. A new sign will serve as a reflection of all the changes that will take place within the historic United States Mint structure.

The award to The Mint Museum is the fifth in a series of grants to be awarded by SouthWood to nonprofits in the Charlotte area. SouthWood’s “Identifying Our Community” grant program will award a total of $100,000 worth of signage and services to eligible nonprofit organizations to install new signage or upgrade existing signage to create a positive environment. Grants will be awarded in $5,000 increments to a different nonprofit every quarter.
