Mel Andringa received his MA (1971) and MFA (1978) from the University of Iowa with an emphasis in Multimedia/Intermedia. In 1975, he founded The Drawing Legion, a performance art company that toured original productions in over 50 U.S. cities and the Netherlands. In 1990, Mel Andringa and F. John Herbert founded Legion Arts, a multidisciplinary arts organization presenting contemporary art at CSPS, a 115-year old Czech meeting hall, in Cedar Rapids.

"The puzzle collage is an example of artworks I make out of jigsaw puzzles I find that have different pictures but are cut with the same stamp."
