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.
