3 “Beauties” chosen as “Common Work of Art’ at KU


Three of Willie Cole's prints from the Beauties series he made with Highpoint Editions in 2012 have been chosen as the University of Kansas’ Common Work of Art for the 2016-2017 academic year.

“The Common Work of Art contributes to different modes and perspectives for students to engage more fully in the ideas generated by the Common Book through courses and co-curricular programming,” said Howard Graham, associate director for academic programs.

These three intaglio & relief prints—“Calpurnia,” “Bertha Mae” and “Lula Bell”—will accompany KU’s Common Book, “Between the World and Me” by Ta-Nehisi Coates.
