It is a museum of glass.

Some of the most beautiful glass is displayed. A wonderful place to wander around looking at the fine art of glass.

Much more than just a Foundation, this spot is a secret art gallery. The main floor (street level) is full of gorgeous glass works and other art from the Luski and Gorelick families. Be sure to add it to your list when visiting Charlotte.

If you are planning an important event or meeting, consider having it here. The rooms vary to meet your needs. The artwork in the lobby and scattered throughout is spectacular. The view of the city, especially at night, is stunning. Great location.

Foundation for the Carolinas is a beautiful venue. Our company reserves their rooms for a ton of different events and meetings. The staff there is very friendly, as well. This is also a great place to go and view a lot of beautiful artwork.

I recently attended a wedding and reception here! What a beautiful venue! There was a cocktail hour in the main lobby and the wedding reception had an outside patio overlooking the city...spectacular view!

June 2016 was the last time I was at the Foundation for The Carolinas. Since I live in Charlotte I always take my out of town company to see the most fantastic display of Glass Works I have ever seen The Glass Works Display changes ever so often.

The Foundation does amazing work in the community, but I love the art in the public spaces. It is a wonderful respite from the hustle and heat of Tryon Street.

This is a wonderful collection that we stumbled across during a walking tour of downtown Charlotte. All you have to do is sign in, and you can spend as much time as you like viewing this lovely collection, up close and personal. The space is bright and wide open, and the employees are happy to leave you alone or answer... More

I shared the exhibit with my 15-yr old daughter recently and had a wonderful time with her exploring all the lovely exhibits. I am so grateful for the opportunity to walk in off the street without having to pay a fee and spend a quick hour introducing the gift of art to a young person mostly just interested in her... More
