Charlotte Art League Announces Move
Community Icon to Occupy Groundbreaking Arts Destination and Launch Capital Campaign to Kick Off 2021
By: Charlotte Art League
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 (https://www.charlottefilmsociety.com/)
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."
