Family First: Sculpting Your Vision

Family First: Sculpting Your Vision

About This Campaign

Every person has a story to tell. Artist Kevin Cole shares his story and life experiences through mixed-media sculptures. Among his most famous works are intricate, wood-based sculptures made to look like neck-ties and blankets. “When I turned eighteen years old, my grandfather stressed the importance of voting by taking me to a tree where he was told that African-Americans were lynched by their neckties on their way to vote. The experience left a profound impression in my mind." – Artist Kevin Cole.

Gantt Center teaching artist, Dulce Tavares, will lead students in creating their own hands-on mixed-media sculpted banner inspired by the art of Kevin Cole.
