Publicity Chair

The Midwest Collage Society invites the public to view a traveling Exhibit “Alphabetica III” at the Orland Park Library, 14921 Ravinia Ave. Orland Park, IL 60462. The exhibit runs from April 30th to May 29th. Meet the artists on May 1st 7-8:30pm.

The Midwest Collage Society members created this exhibit called “Alphebetica” from one of its own members ideas of using a set of old school alphabet cards. Mary Warner asked each member to pick a card and freely interpret it as they wished. The first exhibit, “Alphabetica”, was shown at Downers Grove Public Library in April 2008 and then shown in September as “Alphabetica II” at Indian Prairie Public Library in Darien. The third exhibit, “Alphabetica III”, will be exhibited at Orland Park Library during the May of 2009. Each time the exhibit has been presented a few piece have sold; this has encouraged the artists to create new pieces. The Midwest Collage Society members try to represent each letter of the alphabet, but at time a few letters are missing. Children have been encouraged to come to the library’s exhibit to “Find the Missing Letters”
