#cltArts March Meetup: The Bechtler Museum of Modern Art

firebird-charlotte-bechtler

The #cltArts monthly meetup team is back for March with a visit to the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, 2:30 p.m. Thursday, March 24. Opened in 2010, the Bechtler represents a collection of over 1,500 pieces of mid-century modern art, with a focus on European, School of Paris-style works. The Bechtler’s collection, amassed privately over 70 years, was donated to the city of Charlotte by the Bechtler family, with the hopes of sharing their unique treasures with the community. Six years into the museum’s existence, only roughly 25% of the collection has been shown for public view.
