Israeli born, St. Louis-based artist Edo Rosenblith will guide COCA visitors of all ages in creating a site-specific mural, blurring the distinction between artist and audience. Inspired by Rosenblith’s signature black and white wall drawings, the mural will reflect the thoughts, ideas, opinions and expectations expressed through collective visual impressions on COCA’s Millstone Gallery walls. Let Me Help You Make A Mural serves as a visual call and response that evolves over time, where the audience is invited to join the artist in creating a mural. The exhibition marks Rosenblith’s first time-based and community-collaborative work.

 

Curated by Yvonne Osei, Curator in Residence at COCA, the intention of this exhibition is to dissolve the boundaries between the artist’s private studio and the gallery space, inviting the public to become active participants in both the production and consumption of art.

Presents

“The Realistic Joneses”

July 26 – August 12, 2018

Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays at 8pm

$50 Adult | $40 Student

In The Realistic Joneses, Will Eno connects two suburban couples who have so much more in common than their identical homes and their shared last names.  As their relationships begin to irrevocably intertwine, the Joneses must decide between their idyllic fantasies and their imperfect realities and, ultimately, confront mortality.hat result from Alzheimer’s or dementia, while gently reminding us of our own fragility as we try to maintain our balance on the tightrope between night and day, between yesterday and tomorrow, between meaning and meaninglessness.  Michael Dorsey directs Jerry Vogel and Kari Ely in this “witty, moving, and beautifully observed” piece (Kate Herbert, Melbourne Herald Sun).
