McColl Center
for Art + Innovation

A nationally acclaimed contemporary art center dedicated to connecting art and artists with the community.

Located in a historic, neo-Gothic church in Uptown Charlotte, the Center houses nine artist studios and over 5,000 square feet of Gallery space. We welcome the public to explore our exhibitions and connect with artists through various programs including open studios, community engagement initiatives, workshops and more.



Innovation

The Center takes an active role in presenting contemporary art and the creative process as a road to open dialogue and innovative thinking. The Innovation Institute is a program designed to extend our mission as a catalyst for change by growing capacity, both for individuals and organizations.

All of the Innovation Institute’s programs are built using a similar framework and operate under the belief that creativity is not some mystical power that has been bestowed upon a select few. Rather, it’s a muscle that everyone has and a skill that anyone can strengthen and apply.
