Collage and Assemblage are approaches to creating art with conventional an unconventional materials that are limitless in their scope. Collage got its start with Picasso and Braque and was utilized by many prominent artists such as Henri Matisse and Kurt Schwitters in the early to mid 1900's. In the late 20th contrary, artists such as Romare Bearden, Damian Hirst, and David Hockney found collage an important addition to their arsenal of expressive tools. Since then, many artists have immersed themselves in collage and assemblage as an art form unto its self, as seen in the work of Hannah Hoch photomontage, Joseph Cornell assemblage, Kris Kuksi assemblage, Roslyn Rose digital collage, and Mickalene Thomas mixed media, to name a few. Up-cycled bits from a fragmented society, altered books, altered art, found object sculpture, digital inventions and mixed media have become an art form that has come to the forefront and emerged as one of the most compelling new developments in the art world today. Blue Door Art Center is honored to showcase the work of artists who are creating something whole from the chaos, powerfully and contemplatively.

Artists' decorations of outdoor concrete waste receptacles. Designs that relate to environmental issues were encouraged.
Blue Door Artist Center and the Downtown/Waterfront BID are co-sponsoring the second round of a public art project for local artists – Yonkers Art Banners. These banners will draw attention to Yonkers, to its small businesses and its growing art community.
Artists are invited to submit designs for 30”x50” vertical banners that will be installed on light poles in Downtown Yonkers. The banners will be professionally fabricated on durable materials and will be on display for at least three years. We plan to install up to 20 new banners.
The Blue Door Artist Association has invited outdoor sculptors to install their work along the Yonkers waterfront. Sculptures are loaned to the City of Yonkers. We hope to make the waterfront an exciting destination for both residents and visitors to the city.This project is made possible by the generous support of the City of Yonkers, Mayor Mike Spano and Planning Commissioner Wilson Kimball.
