City Commissioners’ Main Conference Room

Emphasizing the City's commitment to showcase local art and artists, Mayor Andrew Gillum initiated an expansion of the Art in Public Places program. In collaboration with the City, COCA has designed a public exhibition space on the fourth floor of City Hall in the City Commissioners’ Main Conference Room. This space is one of the most active public locations in City Hall, with frequent meetings of local leaders and decision makers.

Each spring, as the annual Creative Tallahassee exhibition draws to a close, members of the Mayor’s staff tour the City Hall Gallery and select a variety of artworks for COCA to install in the Commissioners’ Main Conference Room. The artworks currently on display were selected from the 2018 Creative Tallahassee exhibition. Eleven of the area’s most exciting artists are highlighted in this extension exhibition which features twelve artworks in a variety of mediums including oil, acrylic, and watercolor paintings, colored pencil, encaustic, fiber, photography, and glass.

The participating artists are: Natalia Andreeva, Maria Balingit, Debra Brienen, Randy Brienen, Leslie Cohen, Steve Coleman, James Daniels, Fran Dellaporta, Jenn Egelfeld, Sharon Hester, Jennifer Joseph, Elvi Nichols, Ruth Nickens, and Tavani Williams.

The exhibition is curated by COCA on behalf of the City of Tallahassee as part of the Art in Public Places program.
