Here’s the deal, plain and simple. We want to make a collage of all your beautiful faces. You, yeah YOU. You live in or around Mankato? Then yes, YOU. We’re gonna take your picture and put it up in a gallery show with you and all the awesome people that live around you and with you in your community. Ok, now that’s been said. Here’s the more detailed message below.

The Community Collage project was created by photographer Josh Madson as a way to showcase the diversity and harmony of the Mankato community. Watch a short film on the project. Following three complimentary photo shoots for Mankato community members of from all walks of life, cultures and socio-economic backgrounds, more than 800 portraits were shot and displayed in a gallery show at the Coffee Hag throughout the month of September 2023.

Subsequently, the collage was displayed at the Carnegie Art Center in Nov of 2023. Community members were photographed during a 2-minute photoshoot, with a classic black and white portrait style to give more emphasis to the faces and personality of the participants. The photos were printed for a floor-to-ceiling photo collage art installation at the Coffee Hag, creating an immersive experience where participants and exhibit attendees were able to feel a sense of joy and pride to be a part the vast abundance of diversity and greatness that exists within the community.
