|COSACOSA art at large, Inc. is a non-profit organization creating new public art specific to the concerns of Philadelphia neighborhoods in direct, long-term collaboration with city residents. COSACOSA reasserts art's original role as a catalyst for community dialogue, creative cooperation, and positive change. Since 1990, COSACOSA projects have brought together thousands of citizens of diverse backgrounds and differing abilities to learn about art, about each other, and about how to work together.|
Please join us for COSACOSA's public programs and ongoing initiatives!
|Throughout 2015, we're celebrating the 25th anniversary of COSACOSA's founding and the 20th anniversary of COSACOSA's Healing Art Project, our initiative exploring relationships among art, health, and community.
This year, our Lifelines project will promote art for healing in city neighborhoods. Collaborating with diverse groups of Philadelphia residents, we're creating meaningful opportunities for all our city's residents to create art, while advancing community healing and public health practices. Please join us in our Manayunk studio and around the city as we showcase diverse public art and ideas about how to "make it better!"
Lifelines Open Studio at COSACOSA
Join COSACOSA artists to create new public art for The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and our North Philadelphia Hope Reading Garden.
We'll be breaking tile, preparing new boards, and grouting completed mosaics from 10 am to 12 noon on Monday, February 9th at our Manayunk workshop.
Please email us to visit and volunteer. Hope to see you there!
