Is there any way to give a playlist its own artwork?

For example, if I compile a bunch of songs (each of which have their own album art) into a playlist because they are all from a given movie, is it possible for the playlist to have and display its own artwork, despite the artwork for the individual songs?

Thanks.

Are we talking about iTunes?

Sorry.

Where exactly are you expecting to see this artwork?

I believe -- for purposes of CoverFlow -- the artwork it displays
is based on track 1 (or the lowest numbered track) of the "album".

To my knowledge, playlists don't have any artwork (unless its songs
all happen to be from the same single album).

I'd like to see it in CoverFlow or on my iPod when I am inside that playlist.

iTunes does not allow you to associate artwork with a playlist as far as I know.
