The Mint Museum has an incredible lineup of events planned for May. They're continuing their Year of Fashion with "The Glamour and Romance of Oscar de la Renta," curated by none other than André Leon Talley (former editor-at-large for American Vogue magazine and total fashion icon himself) and bringing back the ever-popular Derby Days, Taste of the Mint, and free yoga! Toss in a free Uptown gallery crawl, powerhouse lecturer and Mother's Day shop-a-thon and you've got your whole month covered with all the art-loving events you could want.
The Mint is already scoring major points on Wednesdays with free night hours, but they also host NC Yoga Bar classes in the galleries. Prepare to immerse yourself in art and meditation—namaste.
