Now, that sounds like a good time, lovesMountains. Nothing like a good museum to broaden one's understanding.

2010 is going to be very exciting with all the new museums opening, the Betchler, the new Mint and of course the Nascar Hall of Fame too.

I am looking forward to this as well.

My better half did some work with them earlier this week; she is helping to set up the portion of their website that will take donations and memberships. She was hoping to go down and meet with the staff in person and get a sneak peak inside...but it ended up being via teleconference.

This Saturday is the big day...

Bechtler Museum of Modern Art Grand Opening!
420 South Tryon Street
Charlotte, NC 28202

The Bechtler Museum of Modern Art opens to the public January 2, 2010 with a ribbon cutting ceremony at noon and free admission all day. The Bechtler Museum of Modern Art is named after the family of Andreas Bechtler, a Charlotte resident and native of Switzerland who assembled and inherited a collection of more than 1,400 artworks created by major figures of 20th-century modernism and donated it to the public trust. The Bechtler collection reflects most of the important art movements and schools from the 20th century with a deep holding of the School of Paris. In many instances, the holdings by a particular artist are across various media (painting, sculpture, drawing, prints and decorative arts). Books, photographs and letters illustrating personal connections to the Bechtler family accompany some works in the collection. Only a handful of the artworks in the Bechtler collection have been on public view in the United States. Until now, the collection was privately held by the Bechtler family of Switzerland and has since been committed to the city of Charlotte.

I haven't made out yet either. But the Observer has some great features on it, with pictures and videos. Here's the link below...

One of my friends (who is also a member of this forum) went to the opening day events, and she was very impressed.

I am very excited about it! This is exactly what Charlotte has needed - more museums!

Now we all need to get out and support these great additions to our city.
