The Brooklyn Collage Collective was founded in 2013 by Morgan Jesse Lappin and has acted as a beacon to collage artists both local and from all over the world. Since the beginning the collective has gone through many changes, finally hitting its peak now in 2018. The core crew of 4 unique artists seek to explore and push the boundaries of what collage is, can be, and inspire those along the way. The Collective’s goal is to bring attention to the medium of collage and to build a strong community of collage and mixed media artists.
