We’re an artist residency and contemporary art space in Charlotte, North Carolina.
We champion contemporary artists and spark creative experiences for positive community impact.
We envision a community where contemporary artists and an engaged public enhance their creative capacity through relevant, diverse, and accessible experiences.
McColl Center is a nationally acclaimed artist residency and contemporary art space in Charlotte, North Carolina. Located in the former Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church in Uptown Charlotte, McColl Center houses individual artist studios, more than 5,000 square feet of exhibition space, and multiple common-use spaces, including a studio for large-scale sculpture fabrication. We invite artists to take risks in their processes and explore their ideas within the context of Charlotte, and we welcome the visiting public to connect with contemporary art and artists through exhibitions and public programs.
