Tonight - Future Party!

There's not much we can say about this event other than come disguised, come with henchmen, come with death beams and rocketships for the inevitable escape.

Also, there will be music from Ricer, Zano and Eiliyas. Don't miss it.

MINT is moving!

We are pleased to announce the upcoming relocation of the gallery and art center from 684 John Wesley Dobbs Ave, Unit B to 145B Sampson Street, Atlanta, GA 30312.

“The new space is a bit more manageable and a step in the direction of a traditional gallery. It also offers more outdoor flexibility and is even more accessible to the Beltline,” says Gallery Manager Mike Germon. The relocation will allow for a more secluded event space and a more diverse spectrum of programming while remaining in the same, creative Old 4th Ward neighborhood.

The final exhibit in the current space will be “BOOLESH1T” from Nikita Gale, opening on November 6th. There is a closing party for the exhibit and the space scheduled for November 27th. It will feature refreshments and music from local bands; the lineup and other information will be announced at a later date. The first exhibit in the new space will be MINT’s 5th Annual Postcard Pinup Show on December 3rd, a non-curated exhibit open to all creatives.

The Chronicles of Follicles - Chapter 2

MINT is proud to host a photography series by Travis and Nate Dorn, that chronicles the stories of a few select men, with beards, doing "man-things" like digging a hole, cutting hair, taming fire, or eating steak in the bathtub. The photos are dramatically shot, fun and maybe even a little disturbing. The subjects are men with notable beards. Some are in well-know bands, others are great filmmakers, editors, outlaws, or famous artists.

Accolades for "The Chronicles of Follicles"(aka the Man-Beard photo project):

The overall series received an Honorable Mention in the 2009 International Photography Awards (out of 18,000 submissions worldwide).

"The Cult Leader" photo received a top Nominee title in the 4th Annual Photography Masters Cup Color Awards (another international competition).
P.S. The piece won in the "Nude Category".

Please join us for a fun night of community, networking, and some "Dorn-Good" art!

Bellury Kills...tonight!

Our co-founder and partner in crime has been hard at working organizing his first solo exhibit in quite some time. It's a collection of strange artwork that showcases the mystic realms of magic, the mutagenic evil minds of the ninja turtle villains, and an assorted anthropomorphic assembly. This show will blow your socks off.

Posters, T-shirts, paintings, drawings, 3D creations, jewelry, engravings, and more.

One night only! Don't miss it.
