CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Dec. 18, 2020 - PRLog -- In a year filled with dramatic changes, one of Charlotte's oldest art institutions has announced that it is making a change of its own. Charlotte Art League (CAL), which has become known for using art to forge social connections as it provides a welcoming home for Charlotte creatives is creating a new home for itself, just down the road from its current location.

In June, CAL's landlord, Flywheel Group, LLC, asked the organization to relocate to a new building. Since then, CAL has collaborated to find a suitable space and community partners that will contribute to forging an innovative space that embraces all forms of performing and visual arts and becomes a true destination. They will be sharing the larger space at 4237 Raleigh St. with Charlotte Film Society (, which will boast a 3-screen non-profit arthouse community cinema, as well as several other soon-to-be-announced entities. In addition to a larger space for CAL, the venue will include an outdoor performance space, a dedicated private gallery for private shows, and events space. Slated to open on May 1, 2021, CAL's space will feature enhanced modular studio spaces and lighting art by Meredith Connelly, who is known for her illuminating work at the Whitewater Center. CAL's impactful programming for Veterans, Healing Arts events, and community conversations will continue and expand in the new space.

To fund its move, CAL is launching Relocation 2021, a Capital Campaign designed to meet its goal of raising $120,000 for upfit costs that include building renovations, studios and gallery space, a kitchen and bathrooms. Corporate sponsorships are available for the Theatre and Event Space, Indoor and Outdoor Performance Spaces, Gallery Hall, Lighting Installation and a Dog Run.

As Executive Director Jim Dukes notes: "We are excited by this opportunity to become one of the most unique art destinations in Charlotte as we continue to invest our artistic energy in the Eastway and NODA communities where we have put down roots. We want to continue to make a difference, and this new venue will allow us to have an even larger impact in the arts community and all around Charlotte."
