Meet Nina Cooke John, the artist selected for the 2023 Site See public art installation at Waterfront Park.

About this event

The City of Alexandria’s Public Art Program named Nina Cooke John as the next artist to create a public art installation in Waterfront Park in 2023. Selected by a task force and approved by the Alexandria Commission for the Arts, she will create an original, site-specific work inspired by Alexandria.

Nina is the founding principal of Studio Cooke John Architecture and Design, a multidisciplinary design studio that values placemaking as a way to transform relationships between people and the built environment. Studio Cooke John has been selected to design the new Harriet Tubman Monument in Newark and is a part of the Elle Décor A-List class of 2021.

As part of the City’s public art process, Cooke John will visit Alexandria and meet residents, gathering inspiration for a design to come in Fall 2022.

The park currently features I Love You by R + R Studio, through November 2023. Cooke John’s art will be the fifth for the nationally-recognized series Site See: New Views in Old Town, an annual rotation of temporary installations that showcases world-class artwork that captures that public’s imagination.
