MAil art Archive Ideas wanted! . I have two 5 drawer file cabinets full of mail art going back to 2001. It is organized alphabetically by mail artist or mail art call . Nearly every year I get an urge to throw it all in the bin. I open the  drawers and look at it and its so amazing and fantastic I just can't throw it out - I haven't traded mail art regularly for a few years so I'm not really connected to it anymore, but like I said it's fantastic art. Is there a home for it in the world? Or should i box it up and stick it in the attic?

Whatever happens...DON'T THROW IT OUT!

Exhibit it somewhere perhaps?

Donate it to a school?

Good luck! Val
