About the show and museum :

With this new group exhi­bi­tion at Grant’s Tomb Gallery we cel­e­brate the launch of The Col­lage Museum of San Fran­cisco. Our vision with this new endeavor is to show­case local, national and inter­na­tional artists who work in the medium of col­lage, photo-montage, assem­blage and related disciplines. There is a long and col­or­ful 200 year his­tory of artists and cre­ative indi­vid­u­als work­ing in this field from the early 19th cen­tury and through­out the 20th cen­tury as well as an explo­sion of collage-based artistry in these first decades of the 21st century.The Col­lage Museum of San Fran­cisco will serve to spot­light these artists’ works and to offer a resource for the artis­tic com­mu­nity that may let us explore the lim­it­less visions of cre­ative imag­i­na­tion and encour­age and expand the Art of Collage.

René Apal­lec : The works of the late René Apal­lec will be dis­played for the first time in the United States. Mys­te­ri­ous and obscure, his com­po­si­tions call out to us from a long van­ished world that has since been swept away by the tumul­tuous era of the Great War. Come and explore this rare glimpse into the mind of a lost and for­got­ten artis­tic genius.
