Event Description

Postmarked 2011 7th Annual International Mail Art Exhibition and Silent Auction Fundraiser

Requesting your original mail art for display and sale to raise funds for The Claremont Forum's Prison Library Project (PLP). The PLP is a prison book and literacy program which sends thousands of books, study aids, educational and spiritual resources to inmates nationwide.

Each year, the Prison Library Project receives thousands of letters from inmates nationwide. Often, the envelopes and letters have fabulous illustrations and artwork. These amazing prison artists inspired our annual mail at show. Artists from the U.S. and abroad use the simple envelope as a canvas for their artwork.

Please send submissions of mail art of any size and medium to:

Postmarked 2011
Prison Library Project
112 Harvard #303
Claremont CA 91711

Entries must be postmarked by May 31, 2011

**** ONLY the side with the official USPS Postmark/barcode will be displayed*** Your mail art may be painted, stamped, collaged, printed, and/or otherwise decorated or constructed. It may be any shape and size that will go through the mail and receive an official postmark. It may get worn or torn through the mail, but the handling process is an important part of the theme. Only the side with the postmark can be displayed, due to space limitations, but the art doesn't have to be limited to that side. You may include any message inside the envelope, which will be opened only by the person who purchases the art envelope. You may submit more than one piece… and begin sending now!
