Time is running out to see two Mint Museum exhibitions: “Colorbind: The Emily and Zach Smith Collection” and “Passage: Waterway,” by Tetsunori Kawana.
“Colorbind” features paintings, drawings and other works collected across three decades by the Smiths, longtime Charlotte arts boosters. The show, closing Sunday at the Mint Museum Uptown, features some leading artists of recent decades, including Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Sol Lewitt and Sean Scully.
The bamboo that makes up Kawana’s 80-foot “Passage: Waterway” was bright green when the artist and volunteers assembled it outside the Mint Museum Randolph last summer. The sculpture has “gone through the four seasons, its life cycle, and is coming to an end,” the Mint’s Annie Carlano said in a statement. The sculpture, now weathered to yellow-grey, will be dismantled Thursday. Steven Brown
