Art Day 2005 Mail Art Call: Art in the Streets

The theme for the Art Day 2005 mail art call was “Art in the Streets.” These 18 entries were diverse and fabulous.

In 2005, Art Day was under different management than in the years that followed. So, this was the only year I was the organizer for that event’s mailart celebration.

I received the art in Houston, Texas, and scanned. Then, I forwarded it to Los Angeles, Calfornia, and from there it was placed on public display as part of a large Art Day celebration in nearby Glendale.

The scans include postcards, envelopes, and any enclosures in them. If the return address was clearly part of the art, it is displayed. If I wasn’t certain, I omitted it or blurred it.

THE ARTISTS: The participants were, alphabetically by last name: Vycki Angel (Pinson, AL), Julia Cardia (Vinhedo, Brazil), Sylvia Cunha (Campinos, Brasil), Michel Della Vedova (Limoges, France) Dante Erbolato Neto (Sao Paolo, Brazil), Sandoval LeFebure (Austin, TX), Suzlee Ibrahim (Shah Alam, Malaysia), Joe Messiah (Portland, OR), George Rivera (Denver, CO), Ashley Schick (Clearwater, FL), Shmuel (Brattleboro, VT), Pablo Wright (Cincinnati, OH),
