McColl Center for Art + Innovation’s Artist-in-Residence and Affiliate Artist programs are dedicated to supporting artists regionally, nationally and internationally and promoting contemporary art. Fusing a regional character with a national and international perspective, the Center is a place where artists work, conduct research and where exhibitions introduce a variety of contemporary art and social practices. The Center’s goal is to present art and artists in a way that engages and enriches the community, through the creative process during open studios, engagement initiatives, exhibitions and educational programs.
