MINT Gallery wants you to come celebrate before they relocate

Posted By on Tue, Nov 23, 2010 at 6:02 PM

After five years of holding it down behind its famous orange door in the Old Fourth Ward, MINT Gallery is moving, uh, about 2 seconds down the street. But first, naturally, MINT's proprietors are throwing a going (a short ways) away party.

Saturday, Nov. 27, owners and patrons of the beloved art nook will say so long to their Sampson Street Lofts location, featuring music from Lille, Living Rooms, The Shepherds, and a lullaby set from members of Book of Colors (yeah, that might sound like a snooze-fest, but trust us, these man-sirens will melt you in an immaculately earnest way. Just eat some leftover turkey and roll with it. It'll be tryptophan-tastic.)

There will also be a final showing of BOOLESH1T, Nikita Gale's solo investigation of the tricky relationship between technology and the humans who love it. Run and tweet that, homeboy.

The frenetically paced gallery didn't slow down this year—and nabbed Best of Atlanta Critics' Pick for Best Underground Art Space for their effort. They not only ran a full calendar of art exhibitions and music shows, but put on events like the Wet Hot American Mixer at the Goat Farm, their cool-local-band-pu-pu-platter fundraiser at WonderRoot, and co-organized Atlanta arts consortium GatherAtlanta. Yeah, they're not a lazy bunch.

On Dec. 3, once they're all snuggly in their new digs at 145B Sampson Street, MINT will be holding its 5th Annual Postcard Pin-Up Show (the first one was the inaugural show at the original space.)
