This year marks 20 years of McColl Center for Art + Innovation. Since 1999, we’ve been championing contemporary artists and sparking creative experiences for positive community impact.

You’re invited to celebrate this special milestone at our anniversary Gala, unifying our creative community with Charlotte’s most passionate arts and culture supporters.

THE GALA
You will experience an artistic menu of cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, small plates, and dessert at uniquely-themed stations all over McColl Center. A silent auction featuring the work of alumni artists, dancing, and live performances will be happening on all three floors.

All proceeds from the Gala support McColl Center as we embark on our next 20 years of building a community where contemporary artists and an engaged public enhance their creative capacity through relevant, diverse, and accessible experiences.

SCHEDULE
