I'm Jonell Logan, an independent curator, arts advocate, and founder of 300 Arts Project, LLC. 300 Arts is an arts management and consulting company that helps museums, colleges, and collectors expand and document their exhibitions, scholarship, and collections. Our mission is to support increased arts engagement, education, and appreciation through the presentation and investigation of contemporary art. To that end, I served as the adviser and catalog essayist for the Columbia Museum of Art's 2016 exhibition, REMIX: Themes and Variations in African-American Art. Recent exhibitions have included shows at Carrack Modern in Durham, and an upcoming exhibition at The Light Factory in Charlotte, North Carolina.
I have worked at a number of arts organizations including The Metropolitan Museum of Art; Whitney Museum of Art; Studio Museum in Harlem in New York; the Gibbes Museum in Charleston, South Carolina; and the Harvey B. Gantt Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. I am currently on the board of The Light Factory.
In addition my museum work, I am an experienced professor, teaching Art and Art History at various colleges and universities including schools in the City College of New York system, and Trident Technical College and the College of Charleston in Charleston, South Carolina. Recent public lectures and artists conversations include dialogues at the Association of African American Museums annual conference; Columbia Museum of Art and the University of South Carolina's McMaster Gallery, Columbia, South Carolina; McColl Center for Art+Innovation, Charlotte, North Carolina, and the Women's Freedom Conference, discussing women in art and culture in New York. I will be a presenter at TedX Charlotte this coming October (2016), and am a member of the second cohort of the Arts and Science Council's Catalyst for Cultual Equality, a ten month program designed to bring diversity, equity and inclusion to cultural organizations in Charlotte.
