This April, the Artclash Collective will be coordinating our third Mail Art project!

What is Mail Art?
The project is an exchange of artwork via snail mail in which participants send a piece of their own original artwork to a randomly assigned recipient each week, so by the end of the month each will have sent and received four pieces of art.

Any guidelines?
We ask that everyone spend at least two hours each week creating their artwork and mail each piece on time.

Has it been successful in the past?
The last Mail Art project drew over 100 participants from 12 states and 3 countries!

How do I sign up?
To participate, please send your name and address via snail mail to 4535 Larchwood Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19143 by March 14, and we will send you the names and addresses of 4 other participants.

Got any inspirational quotes?
"The function of art is to free the spirit of man and to invigorate and enlarge his vision."

How about a website?
