In Tallahassee the presence of the, arts, is noticeable everywhere. From the amphitheater in Cascades Park, to all the local programs. Art is one character from the state’s capitol that isn’t missing. Emphasizing this is the, Council on Cultural Arts, or the COCA. The statement on their, About, page states: “Here in the Capital City, like the magnificent oak trees that provide canopies to our roads and line our beautiful parks, our arts and culture has very strong roots. Welcome to our town. COCA, the Council on Culture & Arts, is a non-profit organization that serves as the facilitator and voice for the arts and cultural industry in Florida’s capital area. COCA provides information and promotes the arts and culture to both citizens and visitors.”
This dedication, and love for the city of Tallahassee, and the arts, is why I asked to join their directory as a visual artist!
