Building Connections Between Artists and Communities

McColl Center for Art + Innovation is vital in supporting community inspired, artist-led interventions which contribute to social and economic vitality of our community. The emerging field is creative placemaking and no one is a bigger champion of this critical work than our very own Lisa Hoffman.
