Berkeley Public Library

Nearly 200 collages from the first five years of the Round Table [Collaboration] Postal-Collage Project were exhibited from January through April at the Berkeley Public Library Central Branch. This collection was exhibited in conjunction with an ongoing collaborative collage project open to patrons of the library.

Collaborative Collage Project (ongoing)
Library patrons ‘borrow’ and take home collages-in-progress, and contribute to that progress. Participants work sequentially, independently, and autonomously on common collages-in-progress. Be a first-stage contributor, and reserve the option to complete that collage in its final stage.

To participate, visit the Art & Music desk, 5th floor, Central Branch, 2090 Kittredge Street. For more information, call Emily at 510-981-6121.
