Founders Circle Memberships
The mission of Founders Circle is to develop a local community of craft enthusiast and supporters from across all ages and backgrounds. We increase awareness and appreciation of the The Mint Museum of Craft and Design, support artists, educate members about contemporary craft and design, and raise funds to support exhibitions and programming at The Mint Museum.
We invite members to participate in Panel Discussions and Artist Presentations to learn more about craft and design. We also reach much further, bringing art to our members with Collectors' Home Tours, exclusive gallery and exhibit openings, and partnerships with other art institutions. We expand our reach beyond The Mint Museum and Charlotte with additional opportunities for local, regional and national trips. Finally, we don’t forget to have fun, gathering throughout the year for cocktail parties and open events.
Please join us as we continue to affirm our commitment to the world of Craft and Design.
