As our county continues to watch the number of COVID-19 cases rise exponentially, the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art will be supporting the recent directive from Mecklenburg County’s health director asking businesses, schools, and individuals to help minimize the growing spread of COVID-19 in our community and revert to “full virtual” operations wherever in-person activity is not required.  

The Modernism + Film series, developed in partnership with the Charlotte chapter of the American Institute of Architects and the UNC Charlotte College of Arts + Architecture, explores themes in design, engineering, architecture and modern/contemporary art through the lens of film.

See the list below to view our upcoming season, which will be presented, free of charge, on Vimeo.
