First Annual High School Mail Art Show

NOV 20, 2017 08:00 AM - 05:00 PM

Solomon Gallery - Rm. 2300, Bliss Hall Add. No. 1

Mail art (also known as postal art and correspondence art) is a populist artistic movement centered on sending small scale works through the postal service. It initially developed out of the Fluxus movement in the 1950s and 60s, though it has since developed into a global movement that continues to the present. HS juniors and seniors from NEO & Western PA will be invited to create an image on a size and thickness of paper that can go through the mail as a postcard. This show will be juried by Department of Art faculty Claudia Berlinski and Christine McCullough.
