The event will be at the newly remodeled Underground Arts space at the Wolf Building. The space now has a bar at their ever evolving 12,000-square-foot venue.

About Collage Festival
Collage Festival is a multi-day festival dedicated to the idea of collage and collaboration that occurs May 10-12, 2012 at the Latvian Society at 581 7th Street and Spring Garden in Philadelphia. The Collage Festival brings artists of different disciplines together to take part in an experimental collage crossing various media. This year’s themes are Opulence, Architectural Variation, and Color Theory.
Founded in 2010 by visual artist Toby Celery and installation artist Joy Mariama Smith; our artists partner with our patrons in virtually every industry—from movement, literature and fashion, to automotive, aerospace and communication networks—enabling smarter, faster, and better artistic possibilities. With a 100-plus collective year history of art making between them, the curators of the Collage festival:mult-media artists Joy Mariama Smith, George Alley and Justin Dula have designed and manufactured an annual three day festival where over 100 artists connect and protect the flow of power and data that touch every aspect of our lives.
In 2011, over 25 different artists presented visual and performative works over three days. It was a DIY terrain for works which didn’t quite fit into other festivals and shows, for new works, and for works representing experiments in time, space and collaboration. As curators we arranged the different art/s to make a living collage. The spirit of the Collage Festival is one where no one is turned away due to lack of funds and over 700 people attended some part of the 2011 festival.
In order to maintain the a festival open to all interested artists and participants, the Collage Festival needs innovative ways to raise funds to keep the cost of admission to the festival low while highlighting and supporting local businesses. A key part of the Collage Festival’s mission is to keep it affordable and open to all participants… of course, the down side of this approach was reflected in our bottom line. This year the Collage Festival is hoping to use fundraising to help subsidize the cost for participants while rewarding all of the artists’ hard work.
