City Hall Gallery

Managed by COCA as part of the City of Tallahassee’s Art in Public Places Program, this intriguing space offers a diverse selection of group exhibitions by established and emerging local artists of the Big Bend area.

The exhibition schedule includes several juried, large group shows, each on display for six to eight weeks. Exhibits of original and contemporary artworks are curated, coordinated, arranged, and installed by COCA and they feature all media including paintings, drawings, fiber, photographic works, and sculpture.

Whether you’ve come specifically for the exhibitions, are attending a Commission meeting, or have business with the City, you can enjoy the light filled gallery space throughout the entire 2nd floor mezzanine. There is also a public exhibition area on the 4th floor in the Commissioners’ Main Conference Room, one of the most active public locations in City Hall.

City Commissioners’ Main Conference Room

Emphasizing the City of Tallahassee’s commitment to showcase local art and artists, COCA initiated an expansion of the Art in Public Places program. In collaboration with the City, COCA has designed a public exhibition space on the fourth floor of City Hall in the City Commissioners’ Main Conference Room. This space is one of the most active public locations in City Hall, frequented by local leaders and decision makers. 

Members of the Mayor’s staff tour the City Hall Gallery and select a variety of artworks for COCA to install in the Commissioners’ Main Conference Room. The artworks currently on display were selected from the 2022 Creative Tallahassee exhibition. Fifteen of the area’s most exciting artists are highlighted in this extension exhibition, featuring artworks in a variety of media including photography, acrylic paint, digital collage, fiber, and watercolor paint, and mixed media.

The participating artists are:

Todd Bertolaet, Bill Humphries, Jennifer Lange, Yoshiko Murdick, NED, Stewart Nelson, Rob Nixon, Rabon Ragan, Michael Riffle, Roberto Santos, Richard Stevens, Kristen Summers, Randy Trainer, Sharard X, and Leslie Cohen.

Leslie Cohen’s artwork, pictured on the right, is the winner of the 2022 Mayor’s Purchase Prize. Cohen’s quilted mixed media artwork titled Developing Dialogue is now part of the City of Tallahassee’s permanent art collection. As part of the permanent collection, this piece will remain on public display within City Hall following the close of the 2022-2023 Creative Tallahassee Extension Exhibit.
