MINT was founded in 2006 by Erica Jamison, a film student at Georgia State University. Shortly after incorporating, she partnered with several other SCAD and UGA students, found exhibition space and began working to enrich the Atlanta arts community. Currently, MINT is run entirely by a volunteer staff of 3 in addition to a small group of interns.
We’ve worked with more than 200 artists, hosted upwards of 60 exhibits and partnered with numerous organizations such as BurnAway, Flux Projects, Dance Truck, and Young Blood Gallery and Boutique. We’ve also recently launched Leap Year, a mentorship program, that will allow 3 emerging artists to develop their creative voices. Each day we work to further our mission to to cultivate a stronger creative community in Atlanta and throughout Georgia by providing exhibition space, curatorial opportunities, workshops and classes, and other resources for artists of all skill levels and backgrounds.
