O’Shaughnessy Galleries II and III August 20 through November 26, 2017

This exhibition will focus on a major theme of American artist Willie Cole: his extraordinarily creative repurposing of everyday objects such as steam irons, ironing boards, hair dryers, bicycle parts, and women’s shoes to create artworks that comment on diverse subjects such as African art, cultural identity, gender, and sexuality.
