You've already stipulated an art work whose copyright holder *wants* the
work to be part of a GPL-licensed program. In that case, yes, the
intention of the copyright holder of the art work is best met by
licensing that art work under the GPL.
Maybe that copyright holder also wants to license the work under CC
BY-SA as well as GPL; that's fine. Multiple licenses can be granted by
the same copyright holder in the same work to the same recipient.
You seem to have something different in mind in this more recent message
though. What is it?
