(un)sanctioned


Opening Reception with artists in attendance Saturday, August 13, 6pm-9pm at CoCA’s most recent exhibition Space in the Seattle Design Center, 5701 6th Ave S Seattle, WA 98108. The exhibition, (Un)Sanctioned, will be on view through September 14, 2011.

CoCA and Bherd Studios are collaborating to bring attention to Pacific Northwest urban contemporary artists creating sanctioned murals and/or ephemeral work in public urban environments.

(Un)Sanctioned will educate viewers about a commonly misunderstood and perceived "outsider" art community and begin a conversation about the controversial nature of street art. The show will also celebrate the diversity of the unique PNW street style aesthetic which tends towards a cooler color palette utilizing greens and blues; often incorporating natural elements indigenous to our area; and also giving nods to Native American line form drawing and Asian pop culture.

Artists include:179, Carlos Aguilar & KSera, Zachary Bohnenkamp, CASH, Duffy, Jesse Edwards, Hera, David Joel, Jesse Link, John Osgood, Parskid and Sneke.

The sanctioned mural above was painted on location at a public all ages event with dj at Sandbox Sports, 5955 Airport Way South, Seattle, WA 98108 on Saturday, August 6, 2011, 11am-5pm.

Funded in part by 4Culture group arts projects.
