Write Home Soon

Write Home Soon, by Mark Strandquist, which will be exhibited this year at the Art Museum of the Americas, invites individuals to create a postcard depicting a place--mental, physical or metaphorical--that the have lost in their lives.  Individuals are choosing whatever visual medium they wish to depict the place on the front of the postcard (a photograph, collage, drawing, description, etc..), and on the back, are including a memory from that space showing its importance.  Many of the postcards are coming from a series of city-wide workshops (Workshop / partner locations include prisons, homeless shelters, libraries, mental health clinics, studios for disabled artists, public housing developments, Arts for the Aging, Habitats for Artists, DC Arts Center, Civilian Art Projects, Space of Her Own, Books to Prisoners, Free Minds, Miriam’s Kitchen, a variety of local Universities, art centers, and independent galleries, and more).

If you deemed it appropriate, would love to be featured on the Mail Art Projects blog to invite any individuals/groups to participate in the project.

more information can be found here.


I've attached examples of postcards that have already been mailed into the museum...

If a more 'formal' call for participation/interest is needed let me know and I'll it up.

Thanks again! Keep up the awesome work!
