I must begin by saying what an honor it is to be a part of the Sheboygan North High School Artist in Residence program!
The light is lovely, the space is vast, there are plenty of tables and chairs, and I can’t think of a more inspirational space to start the day in.

Today one of my AP Studio Art student, Mikayla, had the opportunity to Skype with Brooklyn-based collage artist, Jay Riggio. She recently finished one of her AP Studio projects focusing on ‘atlered realities of Fairy Tales’, which led to this conversation with Jay about his artistic process, influences, time management, source materials, and so on.
Jay Riggio created his first collage over 15 years ago. His inspiration came from the overwhelming desire to tell a visual story without the classic ability to illustrate.
Drawing on influences from a background in writing and film cinematography, Jay uses images from vintage magazines and books to create collages that explore his interpretations on life, love, humanity, humor and dreams.
Using an X-acto knife, scissors, and glue, Jay’s pieces bring together unrelated images that create unique visual perspectives. His collages have been featured in galleries throughout the US and around the world.
Jay currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.

Vincent van Gogh to Jackson Pollock, Camille Pissarro to Andy Warhol, the 68 artists represented in this exhibition created against the tide to invent new kinds of art. They challenged convention and pushed the limits of what art was; they were rebels. Today, most everyone knows their names—they are the “superstars” of modern art. Van Gogh to Pollock: Modern Rebels features over seventy works from the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, New York, renowned for its exceptional collection of twentieth-century art.
