The Mint Museum asked people to share their inspiration of Romare Bearden’s work by creating a collage using copies of Creative Loafing Magazine and glue and to post it on their Facebook wall. If you like, you can go to my post on the Mint Museum’s Facebook page and “like” the post of October 12.
This is my submission made last week called “Stage Fright”. While I use some mixed media in my paintings, this is the first time I have used only collage in the form of paper to complete a piece of art. It was more difficult and time-consuming than I thought it would be, but also very stimulating.
“ROMARE BEARDEN: Southern Recollections” will be exhibited at the Mint Museum Uptown at the Levine Center for the Arts, September 2, 2011 – January 8, 2012.
