McColl Center is a nationally acclaimed artist residency and contemporary arts hub in Uptown Charlotte, North Carolina. We are where artists and people who care about them converge, connect, and thrive. As a hub for creativity and a catalyst for growth, McColl Center is committed to putting artists first, supporting them throughout their careers with artist studios, access to modern equipment and tools, entrepreneurship programs, and 5,000 SF of gallery space to exhibit and sell work.
As a team, we embrace diversity, equity, inclusion, and access as core values and a strategy to advance artists and community. We strive to create a welcoming space for everyone by respecting the creativity, ideas, beliefs, cultures, identities, and lived experiences of all artists, volunteers, stakeholders, visitors, staff, and partners, and assume the good intentions of those with whom we collaborate and interact.
McColl Center volunteers provide a variety of support to artists, staff, and our visitors through assistance in public programming and events, daily operations, and special projects.
McColl Center's internship program offers direct experience working at Charlotte’s first and longest-running artist residency program and contemporary art space. If you are a high school or college-age student interested in learning more about how artist residencies operate or are considering a career in art administration, we encourage you to learn more about current opportunities.
