McColl Center for Art + Innovation, established in 1997 and opened to the public since 1999, is a progressive organization dedicated to promoting art locally and supporting artists regionally, nationally, and internationally. Its mission is to empower artists, advance communities, and impact lives through the creative process by providing a place for research and development as professionals. McColl Center, regarded as one of the top residency programs in the US, has core values that include the firm belief in the need to raise the perception of the value of artists in society, the importance of exposing the public to the creative process, broadening their understanding of contemporary art practices, and facilitating their ability to apply a more creative approach to their personal and professional lives.

Since opening, the Center has hosted 400+ Artists-in-Residence (40% from North + South Carolina, 15% international). The Center facilitates engagement projects between artists and the community, public programs, discussions, artist talks, workshops, open studios, performance series, and special events.

In 2005, McColl Center launched the Innovation Institute, a personal and professional development program for executives to bring more creativity and innovation into their lives and professional work.
