Mail art is a perfect way to stay creative, spend some time away from screens and connect with others remotely. Last winter we held our first exchange and it was so much fun we're doing a second round.
Would you like to join the Art Department summer mail art exchange? There are many ways to approach mail art: for this one we are asking participants to register first by completing this form and then mail five pieces of artwork to us along with a stamp in order to receive five different randomly selected pieces from other participants. The artwork, ideally on paper, must be no larger than 5 x 7 inches and easily fit in an envelope. Please see the registration form linked above for more details.
We've put together a very brief list of books you can borrow for some ideas of different approaches and techniques for mailable art.
POSTMARK DEADLINE: July 31st, 2021.
