The Mint wins Best of Charlotte!

Museum recognized with multiple accolades from both critics and readers.

Creative Loafing has published its annual Best of Charlotte issue, and the Mint won many awards from both its critics and readers, including:

Best museum – staff pick (for Mint Museum Uptown, with a shout-out to Mint Museum Randolph too!)

Best museum – readers’ pick

Best art exhibit (group) for Fairytales, Fantasy, & Fear

Best art exhibit (established artist) for the recently-concluded Hard Truths: The Art of Thornton Dial


This follows our recent designation by Charlotte Magazine in May as the Best Museum (voters’ pick), for both Mint Museum Randolph and Mint Museum Uptown, in their annual Best of the Best awards. We also won Best Art Exhibit in the Past 12 Months for Romare Bearden: Southern Recollections.

Many thanks to the staffs of these publications and to their readers and voters for their support of the Mint!
