McColl Center for Art + Innovation is a nationally acclaimed artist residency and contemporary art space committed to putting artists first with 360 degrees of support, including artist studios, modern equipment and tools, and exhibition spaces.
Here at this one-of-a-kind historic place, built from the ashes of a former church that burned down in the 1980s, the artist’s need for expression, advancement, experimentation, and growth is fulfilled.
Beyond serving as catalyst for artistic advancement, McColl Center is a hub for connection within the creative community. This is a place where all are welcome to share in a universal passion for art and inspiration through creative participation and engagement.
We invite artists to take risks in their processes and explore their ideas within the context of Charlotte. We welcome you, your family, friends, and colleagues to connect with contemporary art and artists through exhibitions and public programs.
