    Jason Bove and Matt Brown are trying to accomplish what years of struggle and millions of dollars spent by the city of Sacramento have failed to achieve: making the 800 block of K Street attractive.


    Jason Bove works last week on a mural at Eighth and K streets designed to hide the hole in the ground that's been there since a rundown building fell over in a windstorm 10 years ago. The 150-foot mural will feature a sweeping skyline.

    Collage – the scissors and glue method of combining readymade imagery – evolved from "papier collés," a 19th century leisure time activity of children and amateurs. It was elevated to the realm of fine art around 1912 when Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque began to include snippets of newspaper clippings, tickets, paper, wood and even sand in their cubist compositions.


    Susan Tonkin Riegel's mixed media collage "Pick Six" is featured in the show "Collage, Etc."

    Jim Lambert's creation, titled "Rhinocirrhosis," will soon travel to a Michigan art contest where the grand prize is $200,000 in cash.
