I took a photo of something to do with Clemente Padin

to show one of the Vitrines.

 (Oh wow, type not red now! But type size changed. Sorry.)

Mainly small vitrines with the work displayed.

The work was from The Archives of American Art, which I'd never heard of before.

It was curated by a Prof. at the Universtiy of Kentucky (USA)

with her students in her course on TA DA The International Mail Art Movement.

and more. I wish I'd taken more photos. 

We were very happy to be able to see this small but impressive exhibit.

Oh dear, somehow I didn't do this post quite right,

You can't see my entire comments. Oh well.
