Virtual Art Conversation

Juan Logan

CAM Members: $3; Non-Members: $8

Free for teachers and students

Join us for a dynamic virtual conversation with North Carolina artist Juan Logan. Born in Nashville, Tennessee, Juan Logan now lives and works in Belmont, North Carolina. Logan’s artworks address subjects relevant to the American experience. At once abstract and representational, his paintings, drawings, sculptures, installations, and videos address the interconnections of race, place, and power. They make visible how hierarchical relations and social stereotypes shape individuals, institutions, and the material and mental landscapes of contemporary life. Please pre-register by January 8.
