The Contemporaries Launch Party

Date: Tuesday, May 21 —Tuesday, May 21, 2024
Time: 6:00 PM —8:00 PM
Location: McColl Center

Join us as we celebrate the beginning of this journey. McColl Center is launching a new art collecting community to celebrate creativity and community as we commission unique artworks, host artist studio visits, workshops, and collector talks. Whether you’re a seasoned collector or just starting your art journey, everyone is welcome. 

The evening will allow time to mingle, get oriented, and learn some basics of art collecting. Cultural Arts Activist, Dr. Keith Cradle, will moderate a Collecting 101 panel discussion with SOCO Gallery Managing Director & Sphere Series Founder Hilary Burt, Director & Curator of Davidson College Art Galleries Lia Rose Newman, Artist, Educator and Curator Carla Aaron-Lopez, and Collector Adrian Woolcock. Join us as we discuss different perspectives and gain insight on the why and how to build community through collecting.
