Monday Must Have: Kevin Cole Straight From the Soul: 25 Years in the Making, documents a collection the nearly forty works of the exhibition tour of the same title. The artwork embodies the power of visual metaphors and symbols that may reflect the connection between music and color, or between color and form, to inspire viewer recognition of straightforward and complex relationships. This chronicle emphasizes the twenty-five-year journey of Kevin Cole through life as a family man, friend, colleague educator, and respected artist. http://www.hammondshouse.org/store/p19/Kevin_Cole_Straight_From_the_Soul%3A_25_Years_in_the_Making.html
