CoCA's New Wave Ball & Art Auction is a throw back to CoCA's first exhibit in 1981 of James Turrell so pull out your leather with big safety pins, studded wristbands and hairspray (or egg whites for you purists) and join us for a wicked party that supports one of Seattle's most iconic nonprofit arts organizations. To further our mission to support contemporary art, CoCA offers 50% of all auction sales back to the participating artists so the higher you bid, the more you directly help artists thrive! We hope to see you there!
