MANHOLE COVER LOVERS

There must be billions of them in the world. We pass them every day. We walk on them. We do not take any notice of them. They are heavy, and usually made of cast iron. They come in many different shapes, sizes and patterns. Look, and you will find them everywhere.What are they? MANHOLE COVERS, that provide access to local service systems such as water, electricity, gas, and telecommunications.Post photos of any interesting ones you find here.See More

I HAVE A NEW WEB-SITE..... val-herman-art.eu

Posted on November 21, 2022 at 9:12am 3 Comments

.....

...it has the same address as the former web-site, but is about 90% shorter, and, hopefully, 90% more accessible and informative.

Mail Art and, of course, IOMA are included in it. Look at:

i) the entry and text for 'Mail Art' on the Home Page; ('I make all sorts of art'. 'I produce all kinds of art', etc)

ii) the entry for 'Mail Art' at the extreme right of the top of the Home Page, click on it, and you will find some examples of my Mail Art over the…

THE EFFECTS OF COVID ON MAIL ART EXHIBITIONS/PROJECTS

Posted on October 30, 2022 at 4:03pm 6 Comments

Look at the figures below. There used to be lots of Mail Art Exhibitions/Projects -- anywhere between 120 and 230 each year, from 2007 to 2017.

Since Covid there are far, far fewer. And in 2022, as in 2021, there is likely to be less than 20. (That's 20 organised by the supposed 5,600+ IUOMA members plus other non-IUOMA Mail Aritists, as featured here)

Any ideas why this should be so?

Is Mail Art dying? Are Mail Art Exhibitions/Porjects becoming less relevant,…

bonjour! i have only one name, but many electronic situations require a two-field name.

in 2006, i rec'd a PhD in Theatre/Humanities, so Dr. is actually appropriate for one field.

most folks just call me Zack. 

are you a Dr. too?
