Modern Mondays

Modern Mondays



Don’t let Mondays get you down. Stop in for a cultural fix at the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art. We’re open on Mondays when some of Charlotte's other visual art institutions are not.

A new Bechtler program series -- Modern Mondays -- starts the week off with enlightening art talks. Modern Mondays programs feature local and regional scholars, artists and professionals leading interactive discussions about works in the Bechtler collection and exhibitions. Not a typical lecture, Modern Mondays discussions are open for opinion and debate.

Visit the museum August 8 at noon for the Modern Mondays program Artist's Cafe. Karen Stock, Assistant Professor of Fine Arts at Winthrop University, will discuss lithographs by Félix Vallotton. Afterwards, participants will tour the exhibition Crimes and Punishments: Works by Félix Vallotton in the second floor gallery.

For this event, lunch may be purchased in the Bechtler cafe (download menu) starting at 11:30 a.m. and eaten in the classroom where the presentation begins at noon.

Modern Monday programs are free with museum admission. Purchase tickets online, by phone 704.353.9200 or at the visitor services desk. Space is limited.
