ART: Mint Museum Uptown's Grand Opening 

Friday, Oct. 1

After a whole lotta anticipation of the Mint Museum Uptown's grand opening, I'm happy to say the time has come. This impressive building (see picture) will open its doors to the public for an all-nighter starting Oct. 1 and continuing through Oct. 2 (which is also free admission day ... woo hoo!). On Oct. 1, a lot will be happening, including curator's spotlights of inaugural exhibitions (including New Visions: Contemporary Masterworks from the Bank of America Collection and Contemporary British Studio Ceramics: The Grainer Collection), a Takeover Friday Dance Party, live jazz from the Ocie Davis Trio, Pecha Kucha and more. Then on Oct. 2 at 2 a.m., the day begins with a poetry slam, followed by open studios throughout the day, curator's spotlights, live music from Latin jazz act Los Trabucos and a whole lot more. For a complete schedule of events, visit Free for members; $10 admission for non-members on Oct. 1; Free admission for all on Oct 2. Mint Museum Uptown, 500 S. Tryon St. 704-337-2000.
