Event Description
In conjunction with the 2016 KU Common Book, the Spencer Museum of Art selected three prints from Willie Cole’s Beauties series as the Common Work of Art. Cole is perhaps best known for his assemblage sculptures composed of irons, women’s shoes, and hair dryers, which he transforms into objects resembling West African sculpture. Join Cole for a discussion about his artistic practice and the themes he explores in his work.
