You better get yourself down to the new Bechtler Musum of Modern Art, right here in Uptown Charlotte. The museum opened Jan 2, 2010 and was packed on opening day. I loved seeing such a great opening crowd.
The collection is FAB and includes work by Joan Miro, Picasso, Andy Warhol, Alexander Calder, Le Corbusier and Max Ernst, to name a few. My favorites were the amazing textiles. Unbelievable!
The building was designed by the renowned Swiss architect, Mario Botta who also did the SF MoMA (my old hometown). It is a beautiful terra cotta tile minimalist design with a cantilevered fourth floor gallery hanging over a plaza with a column in the middle.
The Bechtler is open Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 10am-5pm; Sundays 12-5. Closed on tuesdays. $8 adults, $6 senoirs $4 for kids (11-14)
