The general public has the opportunity to vote, June 18th – 30th 2020, on 100 large-scale community artworks from around the world! Hundreds of commissioned art projects are competing for a CODAaward; given annually to the remarkable works that successfully integrate art into interior, architectural, and public spaces. The two projects that collect the most votes will receive a coveted People’s Choice CODAaward and be announced, alongside all of this year’s CODAaward winners, in the August issue of Interior Design magazine.
Vote for your favorite starting June 18th here.
Voters are encouraged to rally behind the work they like in CODAawards categories of Landscape, Residential, Healthcare, Commercial, Institutional, Liturgical, Public Spaces, Transportation, Hospitality, and Education.
This year the 446 CODAawards entries represent $141 million in commission fees, and projects from 30 countries. The diversity of artwork includes a full-scale ‘Cathedral of Thorns’ in the Dutch West Indies by artist/designer Herman van Bergen as well as Donald Lipski’s ‘SPOT’, a 2-1/2 story tall Dalmatian balancing a real Prius taxi cab on its nose for NYU Langone’s new Children’s Hospital.
Cindy Allen (EIC, Interior Design), Lisa Kim (Director, Ford Gallery), and Jennifer Kolstad (Chair, American Society of Interior Design) are among the sixteen jurors, leaders in the design and art worlds, who have spent weeks reviewing and scoring all entries. These jurors will agree on one winner in each category to create the 2020 CODAawards winners circle (plus the two People’s Choice CODAawardees that the general public will select).
When artists, designers, industry resources, and clients work together, places are transformed into spectacular spaces. CODAworx is the hub of the commissioned art economy. Our CODAawards is a way to celebrate these works. The 12-day People’s Choice voting sprint (June 18 – 30) becomes quite heated and the heavy traffic occasionally brings the website down! It is an exciting race to the finish line – the art world’s equivalent of the Tour de France!Avid biker and CODAworx CEO Toni Sikes
