Michael’s work is being featured in a beautiful retrospective at the Mint Museum of Craft and Design in Uptown Charlotte. To celebrate, STARworks is organizing a one-day trip by private motor coach to the Mint Museum of Craft and Design to meet the artist. He will give us a private gallery tour in advance of his weekend at STARworks for Firefest. The day will also include a lunch or cocktails with the artist, as well as Charlotte collectors Gary Ferraro and Lorne Lassiter, and a tour of their art collection.
