Milwaukee Photography Non Profit

Coalition of Photographic Arts - CoPA
CoPA is an organization that I have been involved in since its incorporation 2 years ago. I am currently the President of this organization and encouraged by its development and growth. I think that one of CoPA's greatest contributions to the community at large is our yearly Photography Lecture. We were honored to have Alec Soth visit and share his work last year. Alec was an intriguing lecturer, very humble about his success and open to sharing his process. This year we look forward to Sally Gall's visit and artist talk. October 24 at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design 7pm.

The Coalition of Photographic Arts (CoPA) is designed to develop appreciation, promote growth, and support the creation of fine art photography in the Greater Milwaukee region. CoPA's goal is to cultivate awareness of contemporary photography through educational programs, lectures, panel discussions, and exhibitions. The organization aims to be the primary resource for fine art photography information in the Milwaukee area. CoPA's website features information about general photography news and events, profiles of member photographers, a listing of photography exhibits currently on display, and resources for members. Connections within the photographic community are fostered through monthly member meetings and yearly exhibitions. Members include artists, students, professionals, amateurs, enthusiasts, and collectors.

One of Sally Gall's photographs -- a tree with roots hanging -- has really stuck with me since it was exhibited here (I think at Robert Koch Gallery) a year or two ago. Sounds like you are putting together some great programming.
