Willie Cole Gives Two Artist's Talks Today In Cleveland

If you saw my museum rundown, you know that northeast Ohio is hosting two major shows involving African American artist's--Pattern ID @ The Akron Art Museum, and From Then to Now : Masterworks of Contemporary African American Art @ Cleveland MOCA.

Also, Willie Cole is an artist in residence at The University Of Akron.

"At 1 p.m. on Friday, Cole will give a free lunchtime talk at the Cleveland Clinic's Art Program, Arts & Medicine Institute, which loaned some of its collection of Cole's work to the MOCA exhibit. The Arts & Medicine Institute is also organizing a tour of the MOCA exhibit in April. Call 216-448-0232.

Then at 6 p.m. Friday, Cole will give a gallery talk at MOCA Cleveland, 8501 Carnegie Ave., Cleveland, about his work in that exhibit. Call 216-421-8671."

You might have seen one of Willie's large shoe works at at The Society For Contemporary Art In Pittsburgh a few years ago.
