McColl Center for Visual Art and the College of Arts + Architecture at UNC Charlotte share a commitment to raising the awareness and understanding of contemporary art for the university community as well as the citizens of Charlotte and the region. By creating a greater presence in the city center, most notably with the building of the UNC Charlotte Center City Building and the NC Dance Theater building next to the Center, both UNC Charlotte and the Center will generate and present ambitious, forward-thinking endeavors that invest in the cultural education of the communities they serve. These future programs will focus on: raising the intellectual and aesthetic interest in contemporary art on the campus and throughout Charlotte, maintaining a vital presence in the community through arts programming, workshops, lectures, and exhibitions and forging new connections with other disciplines on the UNC Charlotte campus.

Each year, in partnership with University of North Carolina at Charlotte College of Arts and Architecture 1 artist is selected by both institutions with the shared goal of more sustained interactions with UNC Charlotte students through interdisciplinary collaborative projects, art exhibitions, and innovative educational programming.

Selections are made by McColl Center for Visual Art programmatic staff and faculty members from UNC Charlotte. 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 working collaboratively within a Residency program and or University setting is preferable. The Center and UNC Charlotte are looking for artists who can easily adapt to an urban setting, are engaged in research and investigation, and are interested in the world as the site, subject and material of their work.
