Post Mail Art Projekt 2021: Show Me Mail Art
March 1, 2021–January 31, 2022
At Post Art Library (1901 E 20th St)

In 2014, Post Art Library put out an international call for mail art for an exhibit that has since turned into an ongoing project. Post Mail Art Projekt 2021: Show Me Mail Art is an exhibit of pieces in their collection, as well as an active call for mail art. The call is open to anyone who would like to participate, but Missouri residents are particularly encouraged to send mail art in celebration of the state Bicentennial! Starting Thursday, July 1, 2021 Post Art Library sponsored Mail-Art Take-Home Kits will be available on a first come, first serve basis while supplies last. Kits for adults may be picked up at the Reference Desk; kits for Teens may be picked up in the Teen Department; and kits for children may be picked up in the Children’s Department. When complete, mail art to:

The theme for 2021 is open, pieces will not be returned to senders, and those who provide a return address will receive mail art in return. Do not send perishable items. Not all pieces received will go on exhibit, but they will be added to the collection. Mail art may be digitized and may appear on PAL’s website, social media sites, or in a digital library collection. Post Mail Art Projekt 2021: Show Me Mail Art is in partnership with Connect2Culture and theJoplin Public Library and will be on exhibit inside the library from March 1, 2021 through January 31, 2022. Free and open to the public. More information: Jill Sullivan, jhsullivan@postartlibrary.org, 417.623.7953 x1041.
