World Collage Day is an annual international celebration of collage on the second saturday in May. Initiated by Kolaj Magazine in 2018, they invite 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.

Ric Kasini Kadour, the editor of Kolaj Magazine, writes, “We created World Collage Day because we wanted to honor this community of artists and to remind the world what a spirit of cooperation, mutual support, and creativity can look like.”

Collage gives artists a chance to create unimaginable scenarios with boundless imagery. From beginners to professional artists working in the field, we invited all to dive into this art form and celebrate World Collage Day through this exhibit.

Visitors can cut and paste their own collage piece on our blank paper canvas wall and be part of our gallery mural. Watch as we build a large collage piece created by visitors from all over.
