Charlotte Goes Mod

Modern art enthusiast had a big day today as the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art in Charlotte, NC had it’s grand opening. The only museum in the Southeast dedicated to 20th-Century modern art, the Bechtler Museum’s building is also a work of art in itself.  Designed by renowned Swiss architect Mario Botta, in my opinion this is the crown jewel in the Charlotte street scape.

The collection is extensive and includes Calders, Miro, Giacometti and Picasso to name just a few.   It is the personal collection of Hans and Bessie Bechtler and their son Andreas who inherited the collection and wanted to share it with the public.

Check out the Bechtler Museum website and see all that it has to offer!  You will be in for a great experience.
