Welcome to the Images of Global Peace MailArt media archive. The Images of Global Peace MailArt show was organized well before HTTP was a part of everyday life. 234 artists from 34 countries each shared individual expression on the theme of Images of Global Peace. Images, sounds and video are being archived here as one node in the global MailArt network.
The Images of Global Peace show was on exhibit at the Illinois State Capital Building main rotunda for one month, two full weeks longer than rules of the time allowed for exhibits inside the Capital Building. Prior to the Capital exhibition the exhibit was at the University of Illinois at Springfield, formerly Sangamon State University.
The Images of Global Peace exhibition attracted newspaper, television, radio coverage and approximately 2000 people per day started their tour of the Illinois State Capital Building at the Images of Global Peace show.
A MailArtumentary was produced in 1992 about Images of Global Peace including many of the exhibits, the MailArt story, local musicians and more. The master Umatic video tapes of the MailArtumentary were restored from a sticky and fungi contaminated condition one meter at a time. The restoration has allowed the Images of Global Peace MailArtumentary to be remixed and released in an updated albeit true to the original form.
Images, music and the MailArtumentary Remix are being archived here for your own inspiration and sharing.
