Join CAM for a Zoom conversation with artist Willie Cole. In 2014 Cole's exhibition School Pride at CAM took the story of desegregation in eastern NC and translated it into an emotionally charged multi-gallery installation that referenced personal experiences and historical events.

Willie Cole
"Finding beauty in the commonplace — some may even say banal — is one of artist Willie Cole’s strengths. His ability to rejigger the consumer world around us into something more fantastic creates the illusion that his art springs from the mystical intersection of folk culture, utility, design, contemporary art, and mythology." – Hrag Vartanian, HYPERALLERGIC Willie Cole's work has been the subject of several one-person museum exhibitions: Montclair Art Museum (2006), University of Wyoming Art Museum (2006), the Tampa Museum of Art (2004), Miami Art Museum (2001), Bronx Museum of the Arts (2001) and the Museum of Modern Art, New York (1998). Several of his sculptures were included in “Reconfiguring an African Icon: Odes to the Mask by Modern and Contemporary Artists from Three Continents,” which opened in March 2011 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
