As the National Collage Society presents its 28th annual juried exhibition at Ursinus College near Philadelphia, WRTI’s Susan Lewis discovers that there are still some rules for making collage, but the medium invites practitioners to go right ahead and break them.
The use of collage as a form of fine art is traced to 1912, when early 20th-century artists Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque began gluing objects onto their paintings. WRTI's Susan Lewis considers the evolution of collage as fine art and as a socially relevant form of personal and political expression.
