Coined in the South: Call for Artists
The Mint Museum and its Young Affiliates group invites entries for Coined in the South, which will be on view at the museum’s uptown location from October 11 – February 16. The title refers not only to The Mint Museum’s origins as the first branch of the United States Mint, but also to the act of inventing and/or devising. The purpose of this show is to bridge the gap between the museum, the gallery, and the studio and to showcase fresh and innovative works that have not yet been seen by a broader audience. Unconfined to any aesthetic, theme, or medium, this show seeks to be a platform for emerging artists currently working in and/or from the Southeast. For the first time, there will be prizes awarded, with a purse totaling $15,000.
