May 11

World Collage Day is an annual, international celebration of collage on the Second Saturday of May. Join artists Beth Hall and Emily Scott in making collages in Indianapolis on May 11th from 12-3pm at the Tube Factory Artspace at 1125 Cruft St.

Some collage basics and supplies will be provided, but you are encouraged to bring materials of your own as well to contribute to the group effort! Magazines, old books, paint swatches, miscellaneous ephemera, stamps, string, and other trinkets along with glue, rubber cement, scissors, are all good items to consider bringing.

This is a free event and Normal Coffee is open with all sorts of drinks and food options.

Initiated by Kolaj Magazine in 2018, World Collage Day encourages artists and art venues to hold events on that day to celebrate collage. World Collage Day is about artists connecting across borders against a global context of entrenchment and separation. And the day is about an art medium that excels at bringing different things together to create new forms and new ways of thinking. Ric Kasini Kadour, the editor of Kolaj Magazine, writes, “We created World Collage Day because we wanted to honour this community of artists and to remind the world what a spirit of cooperation, mutual support, and creativity can look like.”
