Artist-In-Residence Program

The Gantt Center shares a commitment to raising the awareness and understanding of contemporary art and celebrating diverse cultures and viewpoints through our exhibition, education and residency programs. In partnership with the McColl Center for Visual Art (2010 to 2012), four artists of color inspired by African-American culture, committed to artistic investigation, and interested in community engagement were selected to be in residence by the Center with the objective of providing meaningful interactions with the community through collaboration, outreach and innovative programming.

Currently this program is on hiatus. Please enjoy the work of our Gantt AIR’s and check back in with us regarding the status of this program.
