Once a month (or more) the artists at McColl Center for Art + Innovation, 721 N. Tryon Street, open their studios to the public. The next Open Studio Saturday is June 11th, 2016, 12 p.m. to 9 p.m. This time it’s an expanded program, with opening reception for the next exhibition, food truck, drinks, live music, activities, and more. This is a chance to meet the artists and talk with them about their work. This is a free event, but there is a $5 suggested donation for non-members. Keep in mind that Tryon Street will be closed from Stonewall to 5th Street for Taste of Charlotte.
