Works from artists including Monet, Picasso and Renoir are visiting Charlotte for a few months, courtesy of an exhibit from the New Orleans Museum of Art.
An exhibit titled "Masterworks from the New Orleans Museum of Art" opens Saturday at the Mint Museum of Art.
The Mint Museum says the exhibit marks the largest collection of masterworks ever assembled in Charlotte.
Money raised for the New Orleans museum goes to its Katrina Recovery Fund.
The 2005 hurricane didn't cause a lot of damage to the museum's 40,000 pieces of art, partially because museum staff stayed there to protect the works from looters and water damage.
But its building and sculpture garden suffered more than $6 million
The exhibit continues through June 21.
