Mario Botta: Architecture and Memory

Through Sept. 1

These days, it’s a bit shameful for Charlotteans not to know who Swiss architect Mario Botta is. He did, after all, design one of Uptown’s newer constructs, Bechtler Museum of Modern Art. Sleek, post-modern and innovative, this building has become a staple of the Levine Center for the Arts for good reason. But there’s a lot more to Botta than what we can see in the Q.C. The Bechtler’s Mario Botta: Architecture and Memory is an exhibit that will clue visitors in on the architect’s 50-year career, with views of his constructs around the world. The fourth-floor gallery will feature sketches, architectural models and photographs. (Anita Overcash) $4-$8; Free for members and children 10 years old and under.

It becomes apparent that as his understanding of the world evolved, Grigsby moved from simply depicting his surroundings to attempting to influence them. $9 or less
