Tonight I’m going to talk about Mail Art with the Visual Journaling Group at the MN Center for Book. Then we’ll be making our own ATCs. I’ll be rolling in with my collection of mail art I’ve gathered over the years to share!
The Journaling Collective is run by Roz Stendahl and Susanne Hughes. The group meets monthly and is free and open to anybody who either already journals or would like to learn more about it. They organize different themes, projects and presenters for each meeting. You can keep tabs on what’s happening at the MCBA by following their adult workshop schedule.
I made a mail art handout for tonight. I’m posting it here so if you can’t make it you can still enjoy the handout. If you can make it, you’ll be getting a printed copy.
Feel free to download your own copy of my Mail Art .pdf here.
I’ll talk about the time I got a bottle of art in the mail and when I made a slew of ATCs to send off with pairs of socks for the Japanese after the tsunami.
Until recently I forgot all about the video I made about the mother’s day mail art exhibition that was installed in a German pharmacy. It was fun to watch again and reminded me of how mail art connected me with so many arty friends around the world.
Hope you can join us!! If not, here are some other fun mail art related things to check out:
