May 9th, 12-2pm: 2020 World Collage Day – In 2018, Kolaj Magazine initiated World Collage Day, an international celebration of collage on the Second Saturday of May. Artists and art venues are invited to hold events on that day to celebrate collage. In 2018 there were over fifty events in twenty-five countries and thousands of posts on social media using the hashtag, #worldcollageday. The following year in 2019, the event continued to grow. Colorful papers and a myriad of diverse images will be provided along with glue sticks, scissors and foundation cards. Join us for World Collage Day in 2020!
