Levine Museum of the New South forces its audience to face the past. The exhibits are engaging and occasionally controversial but always thought-provoking.

Levine Museum staff worked for three years to create this exhibition—and community conversations around it—that explores the evolving relationship between Latinos and the South. In the 3,500-square-foot, interactive experience, visitors learn about cultural pride through quotes from well-known Charlotteans such as Ron Rivera and Felix Sabates. The exhibition also includes an interactive citizenship test to show what it’s like to become an American, along with works from local and international artists.
