Heaven & Earth

Heaven and Earth VI logo

From July 12 - October 20, 2014, CoCA will present its sixth annual experimental outdoor art exhibition, Heaven & Earth VI, which will live and evolve in the urban forest of North Seattle’s beautiful Carkeek Park.

Sponsored by Carkeek Park Advisory Council (CPAC) and Seattle Parks and Recreation, this public art exhibition will offer visitors artistic interpretations of this year’s theme, As Above, So Below, displayed in three main outdoor galleries within the 200-acre park. By focusing the art in more public spaces, the exhibition addresses accessibility concerns for the less mobile and helps protect the art.

The works have been chosen by CoCA Curator and local artist, Thendara M. Kida-Gee, in consultation with Seattle Parks and Recreation, "We are delighted to facilitate this event with 16 inspired artists who will create a menagerie of site specific art in nature, from 15 foot tall knitted flowers by Suzanne Tidwell, to an intricate 10 foot skull crafted from materials found in the park by 3D printing artist Joshua Harker." This unique collaboration between the city and a contemporary arts organization has resulted in an innovative and exciting annual event built on the long-standing support for public art in the Northwest.

This year’s artists are:
