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.

Team up with your closest friends, family members and co-workers on April 28th to fight Parkinson’s at New York City’s Central Park for the 24th Parkinson’s Unity Walk. Thousands are expected to walk 1.4 miles in the largest grassroots fundraiser for Parkinson’s disease research in the United States. One hundred percent of every donation goes Parkinson’s research through six major Parkinson’s organizations including: American Parkinson Disease Association, National Parkinson Foundation, Parkinson’s Disease Foundation, The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, The Parkinson Alliance, and The Parkinson’s Institute and Clinical Center.
Parkinson’s is a chronic, degenerative, neurological disorder affecting over 1 million people in the country. 60,000 new cases (one person every nine minutes) are diagnosed each year. Disease management is important and at the Unity Walk, participants have the opportunity to visit the booths of Parkinson’s organizations, healthcare experts, and movement disorders centers. Participants can watch exercise demonstrations and visit the booths of sponsors to learn about current medical therapies. For more information, visit http://www.unitywalk.org
