Brief Description

COCA – Center of Creative Arts – seeks to commission an artist or team of artists to
create a large-scale, site-specific, participatory installation as part of the celebration of
the completion of a multi-year Create Our Future Campaign and opening of COCA’s
expanded campus, designed to scale COCA’s impact and serve the St. Louis
community as a house of the people. In place of a traditional ribbon cutting ceremony,
COCA seeks a participatory project that ties our community together. COCA will
celebrate the opening with an installation, entitled Common Ground, to capture the
themes of community ground, gratitude, celebration for how art connects us, and the
importance of inclusive and welcoming shared spaces. This is a regional opportunity. Artists must reside in the region defined as: Arkansas,
Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas.
