The Center for Outreach in the Development of the Arts (CODA), a fellowship program unique to Rhodes, is dedicated to the promotion of the arts not only within the college community but also citywide. Under the supervision of CODA Director and art professor Liz Daggett, project manager Taylor LaPorte ’15 and the other CODA Fellows organized Exhibition Momentum, a juried show that intermingles visual and performance art. Individuals from Rhodes and the Memphis community between the ages 18 and 25 were invited to submit work.
The annual event was held at a three-story gallery space downtown and was attended by students, faculty, and Memphians alike. Visitors were treated to works in a variety of different mediums, from collage and photography to dance and live painting. Sooji Hong ’15 (above) won the jury’s choice award for visual art, while Ashley Dill ’17 was awarded the audience’s choice prize.
