McColl Center Artist-in-Residence Program / Winter Spring 2025
Deadline Jun 1, 2024
McColl Center
International

McColl Center’s Artist-in-Residence Program is an internationally acclaimed program that serves as a catalyst for artistic growth for emerging and mid-career artists. We host three residency terms per year:

Fall: August – November
Winter/Spring: January – May
Summer: June – August

Artists-in-Residence receive private housing adjacent to McColl Center, a large-scale private studio in our historic building in Uptown Charlotte, curatorial guidance, marketing and PR support, and a generous stipend. While in residency, our artists have the freedom to fully focus on artistic research, exploration, and creation while also engaging with McColl Center’s Igniters community and the local creative sector. While in residence, artists also have access to our shared labs and studios including:

3D Lab (3D printer and laser cutter)
Ceramics + Sculpture Studio
Darkroom
Media Lab with a large-scale printer
Woodshop

Artists-in-Residence participate in a group exhibition and lead one to two community engagements centered around their practice. An Artist-in-Residence at McColl Center is a moment to think big, take risks with your creative practice, and explore ideas within the context of Charlotte.

Artpil periodically publishes submitted announcements of outside opportunities we do not administer. We recommend researching further prior to submitting, especially if entry fees are required.

    Santa Ana, USA

    In the 1980s, a mere 234 warehouses dotted the landscape of the Inland Empire. Today, over 4,000 logistic centers have been implanted across the region in a rapid movement to bring commerce to the region. Once identified by its untouched land, the area has become enveloped by the sprawling network of warehouses that define the region’s skyline. As this part of Southern California quickly becomes the backbone of America’s road-based supply chain, it simultaneously introduces many repercussions to the daily lives of communities that call the Inland Empire home.

Made in the Federal Republic of Germany over a single summer, they depict everyday scenes of life, work, and leisure (more…)
