UNC Charlotte Art & Art History/McColl Artist in Residency

Each year the UNC Charlotte Department of Art & Art History partners with the McColl Center to provide a special educational experience for students through hosting a shared Artist-in-Residence. The McColl artist joins a UNC Charlotte faculty member to teach a spring semester course, culminating in an exhibition in Rowe Galleries, as well as events and activities at McColl. This course is available to all art majors who have completed their freshman year foundation coursework. Previous semesters have included artists in fields such as graphic design, installation and performance arts, and printmaking.

The Spring 2023 Artist-in-Residence is Dr. Zuzanna Dyrda.

Zuzanna Dyrda is an assistant professor at her alma mater The Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Art and Design in Wrocław, Poland, an institutional partner of the Art & Art History department. She uses a variety of imaging techniques and mediums in tandem to illuminate dozens of prospective ways of printmaking. She explores the limits of graphic matrices and print, pushing transformations through the use of unconventional substrates and techniques that combine classical printmaking with modern installation, performance, and body art interpretations. Dyrda’s work has been shown nationally and internationally, including in Norway, China, USA, Spain, Canada, and New Zealand.
