CODAawards Exhibition at the Octagon Museum
CODAworx, the hub of the commissioned art economy, partnered with Interior Design magazine for the 6th annual international CODAawards. The CODAawards celebrate projects that demonstrate the most successful integration of commissioned art installations into interior, architectural, and public spaces. Winners were selected by a stellar jury - the who’s who of the art, design and museum worlds - who reviewed 425 submissions from 30 countries representing over $99M USD in commissions. This year, CODAworx again partnered with The Architects Foundation of the American Institute of Architects to create this exhibition of winning projects. The exhibition opened May 1, 2019, and will be held at The Octagon Museum, 1799 New York Avenue, NW, Washington D.C. through September 1, 2019.

In early 2019, Seattle artist Susan Zoccola installed a beautiful staircase sculpture for finance company RW Baird on the 56th and 57th floors of an office building in downtown Chicago. The warm metal sculpture, consisted of two “River” panels, one copper and one aluminum, spaced inches apart, creating a dynamic visual that changed depending on the viewer’s vantage when climbing the stairs. It was instantly a success with clients, employees, and executives alike.
