Museum Tower apartments

On a walk, through Uptown Charlotte, this scene caught my eye. The flowering tree is in a small park called the Green. The building, in the background, is the Museum Tower apartments. The apartments are built on top of the Mint Museum.

On a personal note. The Green is next to the condos we live in. As a result this is a scene we enjoy regularly.

Following is a link to the Museum Tower website. The address is 525 South Church Street.

theme day – stylish

theme day - stylish is in the eye of the beholder.  art found at the Mint Museum in Uptown Charlotte
Style is in the eye of the beholder. To me this is a great alternative to wearing a tie (smile). Today is theme day – stylish … in the City Daily Photo community. This theme presented some real challenges for me. Last weekend we were at a great lounge and many young ladies were dressed quite stylishly … not ready to be told no I let the opportunity pass … then I found that the Mint Museum in Uptown Charlotte had a special Holston and Warhol exhibit from March 7th through June 14th … a perfect opportunity because there was some serious stylish going on … however no photos were allowed … so we also went to see the second special exhibit called body embellishment … not really my cup of tea until I found that some of the pieces of art had Safe for Social signs … once confirming the signs meaning with the guard I snapped this photo with my iPhone and will now dutifully include a #TheMintMuseum hash tag. Also, I should share that the art was created by Swiss artist David Bielander

Visit the City Daily Photo theme day and enjoy interpretations of stylish from around the world.

Cover Up your style

Cover Up your style .. art at the Mint Museum
This is a reminder to not cover up your style … tomorrow is monthly City Daily Photo theme day and the theme is stylish .. join us tomorrow for interpretations of stylish from photo bloggers around the world.

The art in today’s photo is called Cover Up and was created by Bob Trotman. It is on display at the Mint Museum in Uptown Charlotte. The plaque indicated that the art conveys “visual warmth and frankness with a startling since of isolation”

I was especially pleased to find that the Mint allows photography in their permanent exhibit galleries. Also, in their special exhibit galleries there were a few pieces of art marked safe for social complete with a recommended hash tag of #TheMintMuseum

This photo was taken at the Mint Museum Uptown which is near the intersection of Levine Avenue of the Arts and South Tryon.

Mint Museum

The Mint Museum in Uptown Charlotte
The Mint Museum is one of Uptown Charlotte’s treasures … it not only houses great art … the building itself is a work or art. Their website says it was designed by Machado and Silvetti Associates. Personally I like the lines and geometry of the building (smile).

This photo was taken at 500 South Tryon Street. Following is a link to the Mint Museum Uptown’s website
