OOA Designs llc (pronounced ooo- ahh) fabricates steel structures that aesthetically accent site-specific locations. Our designs will make you say ooo-ahh as they weave together functional and aesthetic art forms that embrace organic shapes with brilliance in color. OOA is woman owned and operated partnership formed in 2018 comprising of two Pittsburgh based artists, Oreen Cohen and Alison Zapata. Newly formed, OOA is building a track record of urban-sited and integrated public artworks in the city of Pittsburgh, as well as with municipal, non-profit, and private clients. Our approach as an artist design team spans disciplines of art, design and education to build connections with the immediate environment, communities and functions of place. Utilizing our backgrounds as educators and public art design we implement community engagement to create relevant designs that relate to people and place. We have recently been selected to participate in the Chatham University Center for Entrepreneurship INCUBATEHER 2019 program. We are also in the production phase of a Public Art commission for Wightman Park in Squirrel Hill with the City of Pittsburgh City Department of Public Works.
