McColl Center for Visual Art's residency program is dedicated to supporting artists regionally, nationally and internationally and promoting contemporary art. Fusing a regional character with a national and international perspective, the Center is a place where artists work, conduct research and where exhibitions introduce a broad public to a variety of contemporary art practices by artists from around the world. The Center's goal is to present art and artists in a way that engages and enriches the public while revealing the creative process through open studios, outreaches, community projects, exhibitions, and educational programs.

Each year, in partnership with Carolinas HealthCare (CHC), one artist is selected to develop and create a project in collaboration with the Hospital's Physicians, Staff, Healthcare providers, and/or patients and their families.

Artists will be selected based on the quality of their work, written narrative and an interest in participating in a stimulating and creative environment. Previous experience with comparable projects is preferable. The Center and Carolinas HealthCare are looking for artists who can easily adapt to a medical healing environment, are engaged in research and investigation, and are interested in the world as the site, subject and material of their work
