701 Center for Contemporary Art in Columbia is South Carolina’s newest art destination for artists and art lovers alike.
701 Center for Contemporary Art (701 CCA) is a visual art center that promotes understanding, appreciation and enjoyment of contemporary art, the creative process and the role of art and artists in the community. The center also encourages interaction between visual arts and other art forms.
701 CCA offers:
Exhibitions with a regional, national or international scope in the center’s 2,500 square-foot gallery
An artist-in-residence program in a 1,200-square-foot live/work unit, where artists can concentrate fully on creating art during six, ten or twelve-week residencies
The 701 CCA Plus program at the gallery, in between exhibitions, for performing, literary and media arts
Educational programs for adults and children, including workshops, lectures, open studios, panel discussions, group tours, school presentations, etc.
Located in the former community center in Olympia, an historic mill village, all exhibitions and residencies during 701 CCA’s inaugural year have engaged the legacy and materials of the textile industry, mill villages and mill workers.
