CC Magazine has won three 2018 Circle of Excellence awards from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education.
CASE’s international awards program honors outstanding work in advancement services, alumni relations, communications, fundraising and marketing at colleges, universities, independent schools and affiliated nonprofits.
Two CC Magazine covers were honored with design awards. “Birth of the Cool,” the Summer 2017 issue, earned the gold award, while “The Dance,” the Winter 2017 issue, was honored with a silver award. CC Magazine was also awarded a silver for magazine redesign.
CC Magazine covers a diverse range of stories that profile the human condition as seen through the eyes of the members of the College community. It reports on the intellectual, cultural and social life on campus, as well as the impact of alumni in business, politics, art, education and social justice around the world.
The “Birth of the Cool” cover features a painting of a man in a pink suit on a pink background by the late artist and emeritus professor Barkley L. Hendricks, who passed away during the production of the issue. Affectionately known as “the pink cover,” it’s a tribute to Hendricks, whose work gave voice to black Americans and black American culture. The cover was also recognized in the fall issue of Pages Magazine as the “Cool Cover.”
“The Dance” features a striking photograph of a visiting artist, dancer Ya’ara Moses, taken by photographer Lois Greenfield, who is well known for her approach to photographing the human form in motion.
