The goal of the National Collage Society is to foster the appreciation and interest in the recognized medium of collage. Collage has only been identified and defined during the 20th century. The National Collage Society advances the stature of collage as a major art medium and assists in the public education through exhibits and workshops, lectures and publications.

The School of Art Collection is the home of the National Collage Society’s Teaching Collection.

The Downtown Gallery is located at 141 E. Main St. in Kent. Gallery hours are Monday to Wednesday, 9:30 a.m.-6 p.m.; Thursday, 9:30 a.m.-8 p.m.; Friday, 9:30 a.m.-7 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.; and Sunday, noon-5 p.m. This exhibit was sponsored in part by the Ohio Arts Council.
