Event Description

 Annual Juried Student Show and Invitational

COCA’s historic mid-century, modernist building, designed by iconic architect Eric Mendelsohn, gets a closer look through architectural photography in COCA’s Annual Juried Student Show and Invitational (for students aged 16 through early career artists aged 24).

 Mendelsohn’s career flourished after WWI in Berlin, boasting for a time one of the city’s largest architectural offices. In 1924 he founded a progressive architectural group along with Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Walter Gropius.  Mendelsohn fled Germany in 1933, working for a time in London and Israel prior to moving to the U.S.  Distinguished as the storied architect’s first American building, the former B’nai Amoona Synagogue has been COCA’s home base for over 30 years.

Jurors: photographer at Christner; Axi:Omi; someone from the Int. Photog. Hall of Fame; Evan Bronstein. (Stewart Halperin; Michael Eastman)
