Est. 1996 by Cecil Touchon is located in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The Museum archives are maintained by Cecil and Rosalia Touchon. The mission of the museum is to create a collection that is gathered together like a scientific museum that collects rocks or bugs or perhaps like an anthropological museum. It is a cultural record of contemporary art that is unique, in that it is not based on artists being famous or based on the collections of wealthy collectors like most art museums are. It is an artist oriented museum developed around living connections to artists all over the world primarily through the internet. The works that come into the collection are normally donated by the artists as independent gifts or in response to a particular project or exhibition. The collection contains thousands of items with more added continuously.

The Museum is an experimental artwork that could be called a Gesamtkunstwerk (Total Work of Art) and is also inspired by the idea of a Kunstkammer (art room) or Wunderkammer (wonders room) or Cabinet of Curiosities. For some reason the Germans have names for these things! These are all early, even primitive attempts at collecting the world together into a microcosmic environment.

The museum has several wings that specialize in specific types of artworks. These are:

The International Museum of Collage, Assemblage and Construction

As the name suggests the IMCAC - begun in 1998 is focused on Collage/Assemblage art as well as studio documentary materials such as donated sketchbooks, scrapbooks, hand made books, diaries, collections of papers, such as in boxes, dossiers also photographs, ephemera; all of those things that surround the creative process of collage, assemblage and construction.

Our interest is in constructed art as it began in the early 20th century around p
