If you've driven by the old Mint Museum southeast of uptown Charlotte, you've probably noticed something sprouting from the lawn. It's actually a work of bamboo art. The Mint Museum commissioned a Japanese artist to design the structure. His name is Tetsunori Kawana (pictured). After three weeks of work, it'll be complete tomorrow. Today, he gave us a tour of his work.
