In the next fiscal year, Mint Hill Arts plans to add a wheelchair ramp to the front of its building, refurbish and expand bathrooms and add a new sign to its lawn.
The plans come after the nonprofit tapped its volunteer base to renovate its current space last year at 7714 Matthews-Mint Hill Road. Other long-term expansion plans include adding at least one more classroom, two additional rental studios, a performance area and stage, Mint Hill Arts President Laura Sussman-Randall told Mint Hill town commissioners during their board meeting last week.
With 248 members, Mint Hill Arts has seen expansive growth since its creation five years ago, Sussman-Randall said. Gallery exhibits, which are free and change every month, are open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday.
