Covid News

Dear friends and family of Cafe CODA,

With the advent of summer, Cafe Coda has been eager to re-open its doors to the public. As all of us are concerned about COVID-19 and its transmission, CODA has great concern for the health and wellbeing of our patrons.

On June 21, we presented a re-opening event entitled ‘the Next 400′, giving recognition to the challenges of our time. The event itself was a great success as we met our 50% capacity with friends and fans not seen in three months.

Just as one can never separate the value of the art forms from its time, we must also acknowledge the urgency of today. Our responsibility to one another requires that we all maintain a perspective of ’the big picture’ and navigate our lives accordingly. So, with the imminent spike of the pandemic in Dane county, Cafe CODA must, regrettably, postpone its opening to the public until Mid-September 2020.

Through the summer, we plan to continue our streaming initiative presenting solo, duo, and trio performances of our regional artists. ‘Cafe CODA Live Global Streaming’  will continue to appear via our Facebook page and supported by your donations to our GoFundMe link. A complete schedule of our summer streaming series will be forthcoming this week.

We thank you for your patience and support of Cafe CODA in these trying times and look forward to the fall when we are physically reconnected with the great experience of live music in person.

ALL POWER TO THE PEOPLE!
-Hanah Jon Taylor

View and shop Richardson's work: https://www.integratedartllc.com/tia-richardson Tia Richardson is a full-time community mural artist based in her hometown of Milwaukee, WI and beyond. In 2003 she graduated with an Associates degree in Graphic Design from Milwaukee Area Technical College. Since 2007 her work has evolved into collaborative mural efforts that offer many community members from all walks of life a chance to freely express their diverse feelings and perspectives. Tia has completed over 50 murals in partnership with non-profits, K-12 and post-secondary schools, businesses and local government. She was recognized as Artist of the Year by the Milwaukee Arts Board in 2018, and in 2020 produced a short film about one of her projects called 'Rockford Taking Flight'. She believes in the power of shared experience to create a sense of belonging and mutual appreciation of what we each can contribute to the bigger whole to make it better. Documentation of her efforts in the news, print, tv and film shows evidence how, despite our differences, we can work together for the common good.
