Creative Tallahassee - Online
Presented by COCA (Online)
July 1 - September 14, 2020
 
 
Highlighted in this annual, multi-media show is the work of many established and emerging local artists. This exhibition is typically on view at the City Hall Art Gallery and, due to space constraints, a jury helps select 50 artworks for display. The pandemic has forced the gallery to close temporarily, so COCA decided to move the annual Creative Tallahassee exhibit online. Without physical space limitations, we were able to include all 93 applicants and their 254 paintings, drawings, photographs, textiles, sculptures, and more.

COCA on Instagram: Artistic Responses

 
Title: We are Born with Targets on Our Backs
Artist: Edith Juanah (@paint.with.e)
Medium: Acrylic on canvas

Description: I painted an image of a father holding up his son at a protest. The sign the son is holding reads," I am 7 and I already know pain and fear. By the time I am old enough to go to college, I will know pain, fear, trauma, injustice, and maybe even death.". I wanted to show that the trauma and fear we feel is almost inherent; we feel it from a very young age and it almost never really goes away. It is an indescribable feeling being black in the world right now; as if all eyes are on you to either act in a way which confirms an already racist belief or act in a way that promotes our race and culture. When we really think about it, our children have the same fears and trauma that our grandparents did in the '60s and our great grandparents had in the times before that. These are the ideas I wanted to portray in this painting" (Click the image to view the post.)
