*How to get here and where to park*
We’re at 721 N. Tryon St. in Uptown Charlotte. Plenty of free parking is available on N. Tryon St. after 6:00 p.m. and in the lot at the corner of W. 10th St. and N. Church St. (behind Charlotte Ballet).

*Artists*
Esperanza Cortés, Michael Harrison, Carmella Jarvi, Tom Stanley, Chris Watts, and Antoine Williams—in their studios.

*Main Gallery Exhibition*
New Works / Alumni Two, featuring alumni artists Felicia van Bork (2005, 2012), Tomoo Kitamura (2012-2013), and Kevin Hogan (2005).

*Live performance*
Alumni + exhibiting artist Kevin Hogan will perform the completion of a wall drawing with his Ellipse Guide, a large wooden tool he designed and built to drawing his signature ellipses on large canvases and walls. The final live drawing will be part of the New Works / Alumni Two exhibition.

*Second Floor Exhibition*
Selected Alumni Artists: 20 Years of Art + Innovation featuring recent works by Juan Fuentes (2015), Beverly Smith (2001), and Tom Thoune (2001, 2005) to celebrate twenty years of McColl Center. Also included is the original documentation by alumnus artist Marcus Schubert (1999) of his Burning Church Series that helped inaugurate the McColl Center for Art + Innovation in 1999.

*Cheat Code performance*
Cheat Code is a poetic performance by alumni artist de’Angelo Dia (2010) which examines the intersectionality of implicit bias, cultural assimilation, and video game culture. The performance and sound installation is inspired by current events and the classic Nintendo games Contra and Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out.
