Seattle Art Fair Beneficiary Preview Supports Local

Seattle Art Fair Beneficiary Preview Supports Local Arts Organizations: Arts Corp and Coyote Central | Tickets On Sale Now

Seattle Art Fair opens this week with the Beneficiary Preview event Thursday, August 3 from 5:30 – 9:00pm. Proceeds raised from ticket sales to this event will support two local arts organizations, Coyote Central and Arts Corps, which both aim to address racial and economic disparities in arts education.

Funding for Arts Corps will be allocated to their Creative Schools Initiative, which provides arts learning opportunities throughout Seattle and King County, largely for low-income youth who may not have access to arts education. The intensive arts integration program currently serves four West Seattle elementary schools, and funding will help expand the initiative to three more schools in 2018.

Coyote Central aims to challenge adolescents of all backgrounds to build skills, creative thinking and self and social awareness through hands-on creative projects. Funds from the Beneficiary Preview event will help the organization provide scholarships and equitable arts opportunities for youth from a wide range of racial and socioeconomic backgrounds.

Join us in supporting these two local arts organizations and the important work they do in our community.

We Are CoCA

CoCA is powered by volunteers and Allie Gay's contribution has been tremendous. She's on to her next adventure, and we've shed a few tears about that! 

Allie, you'll be a valuable asset wherever you go. Thanks for all your incredible work! 

Pictured: CoCA Volunteer Coordinator Judy Coca, our dear Allie Gay, and another incredible volunteer, Amanda Sweeney. Hat tip to Amanda for the photo! 

And if you want in on the action at CoCA, hit up Judy! We'd love to have you in the mix.

CoCA Archives goes Digital

We are so excited to present to you the CoCA Digital Archives (CDA). With 20 exhibitions that span four decades, the CDA features photographs and ephemera that illustrate the impact of CoCA and the history of contemporary art in the region. Some of the details have been lost over the years, so if you have additional information, we'd love to hear from you. Big thanks to 4Culture for their continued support of this project and to all of the interns, volunteers and consultants who made it happen. cocaarchives.weebly.com

Did you know in 1982 James Turrell was the first exhibiting artist at CoCA? Head on over to the new CoCA digital archives to find out more awesome information... Like that time Gwar AND Nirvana performed at the CoCA Cabana in the summer of 1989! cocaarchives.weebly.com
