Enjoy the meeting room at the artPARK

| June 17, 2019

The artPARK received a new temporary structure on Friday, May 31 as crews worked from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday and Saturday morning to construct a temporary shade place, called the meeting room, by designer Behrang Behin of Behin Ha Design Studios based in New York City.

COSHOCTON – If you’ve driven on Main Street in Coshocton near the court square any time in the past couple of weeks, chances are that you’ve definitely seen it: Two hundreds bright orange ribbons forming a temporary pavilion in the artPARK.

This structure is called “meeting room,” and it is a collaborative effort of the Pomerene Center for the Arts and Ohio State University Extension. The project was made possible by an Ohio Arts Council ArtsNext grant and matching funds from the Pomerene Center Community Arts Fund through the Coshocton Foundation.

Everyone is encouraged to use this space to meet as clubs, community groups, families and friends throughout the summer months. The space can be reserved at meetingroomartpark.setmore.com and tables and chairs can be provided. The structure will be available for use through Labor Day. Part of the grant is to encourage community development and use of the space by groups in the community.

There is little shade on bright sunny days and little cover from rain, so we advise you to have a backup meeting location for inclement weather. The best times to use the space from a shade standpoint are from 8 to 11 a.m. and from 5 to 9 p.m.
