In partnership with Christ Church and other neighbors, artworks are available to the public, free of charge adjacent to RoCo's 137 East Ave. location on the grounds of Christ Church.

The 2016-17 public art program is dedicated to Sarah Collins and Mary Alice Wolf, two amazing women who were longtime friends of one another and generous supporters of RoCo. Both women recently passed away within weeks each of each other. We celebrate their lives and their commitment to contemporary art with this year's program.

The inaugural project What You Put In, by Kevin Dartt, is a large sculptural water feature that investigates water use in relation to the largest system of fresh water in the United States.
