Event Description

Mail Art Call: 

I am building Musiamo Cent (Museum 100). If you want to be a building block for the first museum in a land that does not yet exist but to which I hold the blueprint, send a piece of mail art. The inaugural collection for Musiamo Cent will be curated over 100 days as a fictional parallel to documenta 15.  Submissions received from now will be entered with in-situ text into the museum collection on the 5Ft Storyhouse blog from 31 Jan - 10 May 2021 (100 days). 

No returns. All welcome. Thank you. Sala hantle.

Mailing address is on Mel Anie's profile.

(A working link to the blog is above in the event details.)

It's all biggerwongy love, lately. Thank you, Cascadia Artpost (big nose x2!) and Katerina Nikoltsou (heARTs). The museum is feeling enriched (and so am I).

More BIGGERWONGY today - thank you, Cascadia Artpost. It just gets bigger!

A BIGGERWONGY slip came in today from Belgium! The first one that has ever been received and it is perfect. Oh, oh, oh!!!

The link works! At least something has escaped some of the biggerwongy. I am very pleased to have contributed to your vocabulary, Martha. I am afraid mine is diminishing; indeed, it is becoming quite gutter-al. Oh, biggerwongy.

The link works Mel Anie. I shall use biggerwongy, a timely addition to my vocabulary. I enjoy new words, especially if they are those that mean what you want it to mean at the time. Much is completely biggerwongy in our world.

Musiamo Cent is open. All submissions welcome if I receive them by 10 May 2021. No theme BUT there is also a specific call for slips that show usage of the word 'BIGGERWONGY'. Details on the history of biggerwongy in the link (the might not work if I past it here: but if you copy and paste into your browser it should):

Dumela, clever Martha, thank you and I am delighted to hear this. I will welcome you warmly. And all in good time, all in good time. Sala hantle, Mel Anie.

Dumela Mel Anie! super idea. Of course I will attend, but it will take me a little time. I am very busy with the Shopping Trolley Gallery. As soon as I send this batch of replies there is a slowdown of the mail and then I do the creative stuff.

Oh good, Katerina, thank you; maybe it will get here this year! I'm sending you a cat (not for this event)!

Haha, I would love to include heARTS!?

I am full of exclamations today!!!

Woof...coming soon to your 5-story house, Mel Anie...

perhaps for this event?

(though you may include heARTs, too :-)
