Event Description

THE IDEA: This is a group of students of Cities Semiotics, undergraduates in Communication Technology of the Federal University of the State of Paraná, Brazil. We invite you all to show your city through the particular and creative ”mail art eyes” of yours. We´ll be happy to expose your artworks to art students, the academic community and the general public.

BACKGROUND: Last month we invited Patricio, the Celestial Scribe, an IUOMA member, to present mail art to my group of students at the university.  It was totally awesome!  My students and I have fallen in love with mail art mainly because the many connections between semiotics (the study of signs and symbols as elements of communication) and the outstanding creative process observed in the artworks received by Patricio he presented to the group.  We decided to make this mail art call and soon it became one of the assessments procedures for the discipline of cities´semiotics.  Anna Beatriz Paula, PhD  (
