McColl Center Ignite Nite
May 20 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
McColl Center for Art + Innovation announces Ignite Nite, a citywide evening to celebrate the creative community in Charlotte on May 20. The event welcomes the community to participate in-person or virtually, joining 20 local artists with groups of art lovers to create works of art together from a mystery kit of materials.
The work of art created by each group will be truly unique based on the artist’s vision for the materials provided. One group could build mini sculptures while another may end up with collages or hanging mobiles.
In the Citywide Art Lab, each group will be led by an artist, including Charlotte artists Cat Babbie, Victoria Byers, Paul Farmer, Amanda Foshag, Bunny Gregory, Abel Jackson, Will Jenkins, Taylor Lee, April Marten, Kenny Nguyen, Elizabeth Palmisano and Morganne Van Voorhis.
Ignite Nite will take place on Thursday, May 20, 2021 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. and is free for all. There are three options to participate in this citywide evening of creativity: in-person at McColl Center, hosted at a group captain’s home, or at any location virtually. The program will be live-streamed and will include an opportunity for participants to join McColl Center’s Igniters community by donating to the Ignite Momentum campaign. Registration and additional information about the event can be found at mccollcenter.org/ignitenite.
