Cultural Crossroads Bookmarker Art Show - the Envelopes

This bookmarker mail art show had over 140 entries from more than 60 artists in 22 countries, including: Denmark, The Netherlands, Venezuela, Singapore, Japan, Canada, Portugal, Germany, France, Guatemala, Brazil, Chile, Italy, Finland, the UK, Australia, Turkey, Belgium, Laos, Russia, South Africa and the United States. Read about it in the Princeton Packet.

To create this show, I sent out letters to mail artists who have contributed to shows I have been part of, and posted a call for bookmarkers for this show on various websites. The entries were varied and wonderful, many creative collages, original drawings and paintings, words and languages and stamps from the far corners of the world.
It made getting my mail for the last few months quite a treat.

thanks for sending, Ed - it really was cool to have a room full of kids make bookmarkers and send them back to the artists -- they got to choose any one off the wall, and they send them a thank you letter, and twenty of the rest were auctioned for the library - it was great exposure for mail art in our community.

you're both so right - I should credit all the artists, and the piano player, I am so bad at keeping track of information. . . . if I can dig up all those envelopes, that would be a great project.
and I will look through my Itunes and see if I can figure out where I got that music. . . .

Who's playing the piano? Please give them my thanks. It's a nice rendition of I only Have eyes 4 You. :)

Interesting experiment, but more good to add names of artists!
