You have to be here!

Studio Party is McColl Center for Art + Innovation’s exciting one night only event where we bring together ten alumni artists-in-residence for the first time for a fabulous evening of dinner, dancing, and art!

This extraordinary evening pairs renowned artists, both national and local, with you and Charlotte’s most passionate arts and culture lovers. All proceeds from Studio Party benefit McColl Center’s unparalleled and transformative residency experience for artists and our community.

Begin with cocktails and Dinner with an Artist

This isn’t your usual arts gala. Studio Party begins with a cocktail hour (with all of ten of the artists if you’re a Party Host), followed by an exclusive sit-down dinner with one of the artists (you get to choose which one if you’re a Party Host) in one of our studios, a contemporary art sale and live auction, and an after party with drinks, dessert, and dancing!

Connecting artists with you and our community of art lovers is what we do best. Studio Party will be unlike any event you’ve ever attended. You have to be here!
