Sheila Klein

Sheila Klein is an instigator of transformative experiences showing us new ways of seeing and thinking about our immediate environment. With a groundbreaking career in public art and engagement spanning more than thirty years, her art, architecture, and design focuses on ways of addressing the potentials of place by inserting sculptural and performative interventions that expand and enhance our experience of the banal and urbane.

Sheila Klein will be in residence at McColl Center for Art + Innovation in conjunction with her commission for the creation of public art integrated into the City of Charlotte’s North Tryon Corridor streetscape improvement project. While in residence, Klein will present a series of temporary art installations and community outreach activities as well as meet with residents, community leaders, and city planners in order to investigate and inform her design for the project. 

Memory and Lands of the 20th Century Sheila Klein’s residency is supported, in part, by an Our Town grant from the National Endowment for the Arts – Art Works.
