The 19th @ 100: Women and the Vote
COCA recognizes this moment on the centennial anniversary of the 19th Amendment to honor and acknowledge how these individuals and their activism have shaped our understanding of “We the People.” Please join us to celebrate the suffrage legacy by being part of our online “19th @ 100: Women and the Vote” album.
 
Here’s how you can participate: 
 
  • Show us your suffragist spirit - submit a photo wearing purple, gold, and white, the colors of the suffragists. Your photo can include your friends, family, pets, or favorite location in Tallahassee (bonus points for masks and social distancing).
  • Tell us what you think - answer this question, “What does voting mean to you?”
 
The album will be launched on August 26th on COCA’s social media. Please send your photo, answer, or both to info@tallahasseearts.org to be included.
 
COCA Spotlight
 
Mary VanLandingham
Oil Painter
Oil painter Mary VanLandingham’s muse is found when her camera, her car, and a winding dirt road all come together. She hunts for picturesque scenes awash in warm morning sunbeams or cool glimmering twilight. Her drives to find inspiration first began when VanLandingham was a commuter BFA art student at Valdosta State University.
 
Now, she and her father have made these trips a special outings. Every few weeks they plan day and weekend trips to find new coastal and rural areas to photograph. VanLandingham will snap anywhere from 700-800 photographs to use as source material for her oil paintings.
