Kevin Cole’s “Increase Risk with Emotional Faith,” a mixed media wall sculpture, will be featured in the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History & Culture. “Since 1992, my work has evolved to include the relationship between color and music, especially music as it relates to the African-American community,” said Cole in an interview with ArtDaily. Also included in the Smithsonian’s collection will be fellow Atlanta artist Fahamu Pecou.
Cole’s works are held in over 2,000 public and private collections, including the High Museum of Art, Yale University Art Gallery, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, King & Spalding, IBM and elsewhere.
