COLA 20

April 27, 2017 through July 2, 2017
Opening Reception: April 23 from 2 to 5pm

Celebrating the first twenty years of the
City of Los Angeles (C.O.L.A.)
Individual Artist Fellowship Program

This landmark exhibition celebrates the first twenty years of C.O.L.A., recognizing the achievements of 271 design, literary, performing, and visual master artists and artist-duos who represent the creative legacy of Los Angeles

COLA 20 memorializes this extraordinary assembly of creativity by bringing together past C.O.L.A. fellows for dialogues about the great attributes of living and working in LA, special tributes to eleven former C.O.L.A. fellows who are now deceased, a literary lounge that will include literature from all literary fellows, and a roaming timeline that will feature archival ephemera from each year.

An exhibition catalog will be published in the Fall detailing the history of the C.O.L.A. Individual Artist Fellowships Program with samples of some of the artists’ work and critical essays about the initiative’s elements and associated programming.
