Young Affiliates of the Mint
The Young Affiliates of the Mint is a group of diverse young professionals who promote and support the Mint Museum of Art and the Mint Museum of Craft and Design through educational, volunteer, leadership and social opportunities. Started in 1990, the Young Affiliates serve as the premier social arts organization for young professionals in the Charlotte area.
Our mission is designed to introduce members to the resources available at the Mint, and develop their own appreciation of the arts. The Young Affiliates offer a wide variety of programs including gallery openings, receptions, annual fund-raising parties, membership meetings and after-work educational seminars.
The Young Affiliates make substantial donations of tangible and intangible goods to the Mint Museums each year. To date, the Young Affiliates have made eight acquisitions, including a photograph by Annie Leibovitz and outstanding pieces of contemporary craft purchased at the American Craft Council Craft Fair. These artworks are held in the permanent collection of the Mint with credit to the Young Affiliates.
