COCA – Center of Creative Arts  seeks to commission an artist or team of artists to create a large-scale, site-specific, participatory installation as part of the celebration of the completion of a multi-year Create Our Future Campaign and opening of COCA’s expanded campus, designed to scale COCA’s impact and serve the St. Louis community as a house of the people.In place of a traditional ribbon cutting ceremony, COCA seeks a participatory project that ties our community together. COCA will celebrate the opening with an installation, entitled Common Ground, to capture the themes of community ground, gratitude, celebration for how art connects us, and the importance of inclusive and welcoming shared spaces. Common Groundrepresents our ongoing commitment to ensuring equitable access to the arts for our entire community. The artist(s) will be asked to work onsite and/or virtually with student artists and community participants beginning September 25, 2020 with the exhibition to run through November 15, 2020.
