Mint Museum President And CEO To Step Down In June

Mint Museum

The Mint Museum announced Monday that its president and CEO is stepping down in June. 

Kathleen Jameson has served as the president and CEO of the Mint Museum since 2010. She came to Charlotte by way of the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston.

During her tenure she assisted with the museum’s move to uptown. She also led the revitalization of the Mint’s original location on Randolph Road.

Under her guidance the Mint hosted numerous significant exhibitions, including Here & Now: 80 Years of Photography at the Mint, an exhibition curated by Jameson that was drawn from the Mint’s permanent collection of photographs.

Her last day will be June 30. In the weeks to come the museum’s Board of Trustees will announce an interim president and launch a national search for her replacement.
