“Along Tryon Street, a selection of work from artist Antoine Williams’ recent Mint Museum Uptown exhibit, “Kidnapped Pagans”, can be seen on news racks and in private buildings in Uptown Charlotte. This public/private art installation was organized by Jonell Logan, founder of the 300 Art Project, to bring art outside the walls of the museum and onto the streets. This exhibit, intended to serve as a model for community ownership and engagement in the arts was made possible through the collaborative efforts of the Knight Foundation, the Pollination Project, Mint Museum Uptown, Charlotte Urban Design, City of Charlotte and Charlotte Center City Partners. “We are excited to partner with Williams and his curator in bringing a piece of his thought provoking artwork out onto Tryon Street for the public to see” said Maria Floren, Charlotte Center City Partners planning and development associate”
