VennDiagramFINAL

We are the hub of the commissioned art economy. We connect all members of the industry, matching creative talent with creative opportunities, and providing digital tools that streamline the commission workflow process.

The world of design + art is changing around us. Artists and design professionals are working collaboratively to create amazing projects that raise awareness about environmental and social issues, educate us about the importance of innovation and creativity, contribute to healing and hospitality environments, and develop community engagement and pride. Others create commissioned art projects that beautify and transform the spaces in which we live, work and play.  We identify them as creative revolutionaries, because each, in their own way, is working to change the world.

It takes an industry to create a commissioned artwork. Our community consists of artists, designers, and architects, as well as art consultants, public art administrators, fabricators, foundries, lighting designers, engineers, photographers, and landscape architects - all of whom are outstanding creative professionals and critical to the creative process.

Staff

The CODAworx team is made up of true believers – we are passionate about commissioned art and its ability to transform environments.  Our core staff has extensive experience in the entrepreneurial art world, with an unmatched knowledge of the commission process.

Our Manifesto

Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.

We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.

Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.

In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.

Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.

The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
