Spheres of Impact

Shaping all aspects of our exhibition, residency program and community outreach, the Spheres of Impact create dynamic partnerships between the Center and a myriad of organizations in our community, while raising the visibility of artists to spark positive social and global change.


Design + Architecture

The Center helps advance notions of architecture, design, public spaces and urban design in Charlotte

The Center helps advance notions of architecture, design, public spaces and urban design in Charlotte by having artists-in-residence address these issues and providing them with a public platform to share their ideas. Charlotte's design community has grown and the city itself has become more engaged in these issues. With UNC Charlotte's College of Arts + Architecture, Center City Building, Urban Design Institute and the Que-OS Project of Manoj Kesavan and Faron Frank, the Center has strong partners for this effort.
