If you’re wondering what to do today, there is surely nothing better than joining The Collage Party at Creative Growth , winners of this year’s Lifetime Achievement  Goldie  award.
I’ll be there in spirit, because there are few things I love more than collage (I’ve got a dozen unfinished projects at home, so I’ll cut jewels from Sotheby’s catalogues when I get there tonight).

The Collage Party is one part of Creative Growth’s Public Art Making Day, which connects Winnipeg artist Paul Butler’s nomadic collage project (on view at the space’s gallery) with an audio-visual program curated by Jennifer Maerz and the premiere of A Mixed Bag of Trippy Shorts, a new film (or film collection) by the Prince of Calgary, Guy Maddin, whose new feature-length movie gives Detour’s Ann Savage her best film role in over a half-century.
Ladies and gentleman, take out your scissors and start cutting.
