Wednesday, that day of the week between Tuesday and Thursday. Right smack in the middle of the week. The day you start wishing it was the weekend. That mindset it about to change. Mark your calendars because every Wednesday evening you can escape your day into the world of art! It is a chance to get outside of our everyday life and explore the galleries at the Mint Museum of Art.
Enjoy free admission from 5-9 p.m. at both Mint Museum locations: Uptown and Randolph.
