The Midwest Collage Society (MCS), founded in 2003, promotes collage as a fine art by providing exhibit opportunities and professional development activities to our 52 members.
Meetings are held at 1710 Plainfield Road, Darien IL, usually the first Sunday of the month from 12:30-3:00pm. No meetings in January and July unless otherwise posted.
Midwest Collage Society celebrates over 100 years of Collage As a Fine Art since 1912.
CALL FOR ARTISTSPainters, Photographers, Sculptors, Illustrators, Crafters and all other forms of creative being,
We have an opportunity to “pack” Aurora’s new food pantry! The Aurora Food Pantry and If These Walls Could Talk are hosting the “PACK THE PANTRY PROJECT”
The project aims to inspire you all to do something positive for your community by expressing yourself creatively. We challenge you to take an ordinary paper bag and use it to create your art with. You can paint it, write on it, glue stuff to it, stuff things inside of it, cut it up and collage it; “Art” it however you please (staying in “bag” form is not required”.) A $5 donation (the proceeds of which go to the Food Pantry) lets you choose your paper bag(s) to “art” with. Bags are available starting September 13. Return your newly re-envisioned bag to If These Walls Could Talk by November 17.
There will be a First Friday opening silent auction December 6 from 6-11pm. Bidding on the art starts at 7pm and ends at 9:30pm.
More details are to come but we just wanted to give you a shout out to give you plenty of time to get those creative juices flowing.
