CLOSED - The Art of the Postcard


I just wanted to invite all Postcrossers to contribute a postcard to an upcoming event:

Celebrating the Art of the Postcard

Help the Cornelius Post Office celebrate the joy of small works of art and personal communication. Cornelius is a small town in Western Oregon, known for hazelnuts, blueberries and vineyards. Here at the local post office we noticed that for visitors there was no way of sending a local postcard to share the cool things about this unique little town. We’re working on that! Share your postcard with us and get one of the ones we are producing!

Exhibition: Begins January 11, 2010 in the lobby of the Cornelius, OR Post Office.

Make sure to include your return address to receive one of our postcards in return and to be included in the list of participants.

Send your postcards to

Postmaster
1639 Baseline Street
Cornelius, OR 97113
USA

I would love to send one! Do these need to be handmade or could it be whatever we would like to send?

I looked at the website and it appears that the focus is on mail art. So I've sent a postcard featuring the artwork of one of our local autistic savants.

It would be interesting to see what kind of "special postcard" I get in return. :frog:

EDIT: By the way, I notice some of the postcards featured on the website (http://postcardmailart.blogspot.com/) have the sender's name and address visible. Please don't publish my address, thanks! :exclamation::exclamation::exclamation:

Hey folks! Thanks for so many very cool postcards! The project is steaming along! I'm posting the cards as quickly as I can, and have redacted addresses (Someone had a good point) on the blog. I will also make sure that no addresses are visible when we get to show time in January.

The next part we're working on is the postmark. If we can get it done in time, things mailed at the post office on the first day of the exhibit will have a unique "Art of the Postcard" postmark. The design is taking time, and I have to get it submitted by the end of the week to get it into the record.

Thanks again for being an important part of this.
