Opening. Love Lives Here: A Gathering

As our community comes to terms with the loss of 50 innocent lives, CoCA will open our gallery walls for people to write and process their thoughts. The words “Love Lives Here” imprinted on the main gallery wall sets the tone as people are invited to gather, reflect, and add their own words to the walls in response to the terror attack of March 15th.

If you wish to share your own words in person, please join us on Friday March 29th at 5:30pm as we open the space to the city.


CoCA will also be opening our Autumn Season of Ground Floor exhibitions:
