I Was Given a Box of Mail-Art from 1979

That's right kids, I found a giant box and I'm going to tell the story of the art and share all of it with you good people. Please follow along with the blog I've just created to see this really long journey. Thanks so much for your interest. This is just the beginning.

@Steve. Oh yeah, I've already called him about this. We had a little back and forth where he gave me some ideas of folks to get in touch with. Most of what I've discovered will be in the next post I put up later in the week.

Ask Richard Canard, right here at IUOMA, I recall he was in that red neck part of the woods, I could be wrong, I could be right. Oh, he may have a clue about the box.

Thank you guys so much for your kind words. I'm looking forward to what I can find out about this box. Hopefully I can get an official word from the gallery about the collection.
