The Bechtler Museum of Modern Art is a powerful and imaginative setting for events and meetings. Located at the Levine Center for the Arts, within walking distance of the Charlotte Convention Center, the Bechtler is a unique space designed by internationally acclaimed architect Mario Botta. The Bechtler's lobby can comfortably accommodate up to 120 guests for a sit-down function and 180 for a standing reception. The lobby/plaza combination accommodates up to 375 for a standing reception. Events on the plaza take place under the museum’s cantilevered fourth-floor gallery which is suspended by a voluminous column.

I loved the art here. It gave me so much inspiration to come back home and continue what I'm doing. It made me feel hopeful in knowing my quality and heart is on par with other great artists. I especially enjoyed the woman's exhibit we were lucky enough to be present for
I like how the galleries and exhibition are place based on the architecture of the building. The biggest gallery is at the highest floor, the last in order but the first to start. There you have a meticulous selection of great women artists. The passage thru the gallery tells you another story of the contemporary art. A story of strong tendencies and of others very interesting variations. The gallery dedicated to The interaction of Color is one of my favorites. I highly recommend to make visiting this museum part of your day at the city.
A quiet museum in the heart of uptown Charlotte. Their focus on modern art, and well curated exhibits is in display throughout the museum. The staff is incredibly knowledgeable about all of the pieces on display, and are able to educate visitors in any piece they have questions about. The staff and space also give you the room you might need to take in pieces, which is a great counter to some other musicians that curate a rushed atmosphere as well as world class art.
Wonderful collection and special exhibits. Easy drive and parking. Informative and friendly staff. We are looking forward to return trips as new exhibits are presented.
Will not go there again. I was informed that I could not take pictures there because of the focusing beam on a Sony A6000. The flash was not being used and I showed the volunteer that for the flash to be used, it had to be raised. As a result, I cut my visit short and complained at the front desk. They agreed that the individual was incorrect but they offered no solution . That was $15.02 of wasted money. Staff should be properly trained . Update - still haven't been back and never will.
