The Collage is collaborative event featuring live art, performances, music, and food. Live art will be created by current students and recent graduates from two prominent Milwaukee universities - Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design and UW-Milwaukee Peck School of the Arts. Artist pairs will be made up of one student from each school to create new works of art as well as new relationships in the local art scene.

NEWaukee will provide one 36”x48” canvas for each team as well as a supply budget to purchase paint and other materials. Each attendee will receive a ballot upon arriving and will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite piece throughout the night.
