The use of collage as a form of fine art is traced to 1912, when early 20th-century artists Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque began gluing objects onto their paintings. WRTI's Susan Lewis considers the evolution of collage as fine art and as a socially relevant form of personal and political expression.   

Susan writes and produces stories about music and the arts. She’s host and producer of WRTI’s TIME IN online interview series, and contributes weekly intermission interviews for The Philadelphia Orchestra in Concert series. She’s also been a regular host of WRTI’s Live from the Performance Studio sessions.
