When he is not working in his studio, Collier often travels far distances to visit schools around the country. On September 22, Collier is making an appearance at the Katonah Museum to reveal his artistic process. In addition, you will have the opportunity to create your own collage portrait that will hang in the Project Gallery during the fall portrait exhibition.
