The Octagon to host digital exhibition on public art with CODAworx

WASHINGTON– The Octagon, the museum of the Architects Foundation, today announced the launch of a digital exhibition for CODAWorx’s 2020 awardees.

Through September, visitors will be able to explore award-winning projects celebrating excellence in the field of commissioned art.

The internationally acclaimed CODAawards celebrate the projects that most successfully integrate commissioned art into interior, architectural, or public spaces. The CODAawards program honors the individuals and the teams whose collective imaginations create the public and private spaces that inspire us every day.

The Octagon will also be hosting virtual lectures throughout the summer about award-winning projects that focus on diversity, social justice, and community engagement.

“CODAworx’s awardees elevate art and architecture by raising awareness about environmental and social issues, demonstrating the importance of innovation and creativity, contributing to healing and hospitality environments, and developing community engagement and pride,” said Marci Reed, Architects Foundation Executive Director.

“We are delighted bring the CODAawards exhibit into the digital arena while The Octagon remains closed to the public.”

Visit the exhibition today on the Architects Foundation website.
