A **Bookmarker** Show

An Open Call To all International Mail Artists:

You are invited to participate in an International Bookmarker Art show.

The Plainsboro Library of Plainsboro, New Jersey, USA, is sponsoring an arts festival called Cultural Crossroads.
We are asking mail artists from around the world to submit a decorated bookmarker (or two!) to help us celebrate the connection and community that mail artists create by sharing their work.

We expect many participants of all ages to come see this show, and to make their own bookmarkers as they are inspired by your amazing creative addition. Lots of children from our very diverse community will both see your work, and create their own at our festival. We are thrilled to be building bridges of connection from all over the world to our corner here in Central New Jersey.

Since this theme of Cultural Crossroads represents diversity, we are especially delighted to have an international representation in this bookmarker show.

Please decorate the enclosed bookmarker in any way you would like – drawing or painting, collage, words, or whatever moves you.
If you like, you can incorporate our theme of Cultural Crossroads.

Please mail back the bookmarks no later than June 15, 2008 to:

Cultural Crossroads Bookmarkers
c/o Emily Townsend
19 Sapphire Dr.
West Windsor, NJ 08550 USA

We must receive the bookmarkers before the end June, 2008, in order to be included in the show.

We will be selling all the bookmarkers to help us raise funds to build a new library.

Thank you so much for your creative participation – and if you cannot help, please feel free to pass this letter and bookmarkers along to someone who might want to!
