Collage and Creativity with Jen Besemer

Albus Cavus is an international collective of artists, educators and visionaries who work and create in public space. The organization operates in DC, NJ and CA. Our installations physically beautify the neighborhoods and promote development of healthy and strong communities through interactive art and events.

Education is an important element of our work. In January 2010 we have established the first series of workshops related to public art in The Fridge. Now, the themes of the workshops include art, science, technology, urban planning, etc.

Collage and Creativity Workshop
with visitng artist Jen Besemer

Jen Besemer creates extraordinary pictures using ordinary scissors, bits of paper, and glue. Join Jen on Sunday, March 20th at The Fridge as she shares a few of her favorite projects!

Participants will learn how to create three unique collages from a selection of everyday materials. You'll be amazed what you can make from scraps and sticky stuff!

All ages are encouraged.

Jen Besemer works with words, actions and images to expose hidden relationships (and discover new ones) between and within those media. “Misusing” text, processes and products to create camouflaged or hybrid forms, Jen comments on the entrenched systems of contemporary life and the unresolved contradictions they generate.

Also, join Jen on Friday, March 18th at Dolcezza Gelato for her opening of “Fastidious Travelers” featuring a collection of her collage work. Mention The Fridge and get a free scoop of Gelato!
