Mail Art Call: Merry Christmas

THEME: “Merry Christmas”

Comment: artist Jorge Restrepo (www.jorgerestrepo.com) will make an installation in the Spanish Cultural Center, Tegucigalpa, Honduras (Central America). The mail-artworks will show the reality of the world, the extreme differences in religion, social classes, justice, poverty, income, access to water, languages…of different countries….of the world. While some people are partying and celebrating, gambling…vacationing…in December, others are suffering. Jorge Restrepo will create an environment of Christmas celebration at the exhibit rooms of the Center…using the mail-artworks. The observer to the exhibit will feel the sensation of Christmas decoration. When attendants look in detail to the decoration (mail-artworks simulating Christmas cards and messages) the reality of the world will appear…dramatically…in from of their eyes…

Format and medium: free . All work be exposed. No returns.
Deadline: November 30, 2007

Remember September Mail Art Project

I'm sending out the "call" for Mail Art for the Remember September Mail Art Memorial - the project continues to grow each year with hundreds of envelopes submitted annually. While we don't have a web site yet, you can view information about the project in two places: www.artellawordsandart.com/RememberSeptember.html
To participate, please decorate any size envelope with 9/11 relevant artwork, keeping in mind that the purpose of the project is to honor & remember the victims and heroes of 9/11. Address your envelope to:
Remember September, P.O. Box 793, Katonah, NY 10536
Affix postage and mail on 9/11/07. Late submissions are accepted but please try to mail as close to 9/11 as possible. Be sure to include your name & address on the back of the envelope to be included in a drawing to receive a free CD of images of the 2006/2007 collection. Please pass the word on to friends and family!
Thank you for your participation - Gail Ellspermann
