September 2016

  1. In 1981 Seattle’s Center on Contemporary Art (CoCA) had its first exhibition by James Turrell in a popup space in Pioneer Square and have exhibited in the arts-focused neighborhood multiple times throughout their 35 year history. In February, they happily returned to Pioneer Square with CoCA PS35 for a successful 6 month run in the Good Arts Building as a temporary popup space until the intended use for Cherry Street Coffee’s new location coming in 2017. As luck would have it, another space opened up right around the corner in the famous artist denizen, the Tashiro-Kaplan Building, and CoCA snapped it up. With steady growth due to strong Board support and leadership by Executive Director, Nichole DeMent, the organization is ready to put down roots and continue to present world-class contemporary art to Seattle locals and out of town visitors. On September 1 at 6pm they will open their doors to their new home at 114 3rd Ave South.
