Looking forward to seeing you at our biggest event of the year! Every year, we host a very exciting 24-hour art marathon followed by an auction. This event reaches thousands and draws hundreds of artists and art lovers together. This year, our celebration of contemporary art will commence on November 2, 2017 when over 20 artists embark on a 24-hour journey where they paint, draw, hammer, solder, collage, spray, twist and wax their way to over 100 new works of art.
What's the theme this year, you ask? Well, it's called the 2017 CoCA Legacy in honor of our 25th year of putting on this exciting and dynamic event. It’s our Silver Remix, recalling CoCA's remarkable history. We will be inviting some of our amazing artist alumni along with some of the greatest emerging and established artists to join us on this creative collaboration.
On Thursday, November 2 from 6-9pm, we're having an Art Preview Party at Elysian Fields (thank you, Elysian Brewing!) on 1st Ave S. during the Pioneer Square 1st Thursday Art Walk. The public is invited to preview the in-progress works and hoist a glass of beer in celebration.
On Friday, November 3, the freshly minted works of art will be auctioned off by our amazing auctioneer Laura Michalek!
