Canton Museum of Art Puts Out a Call for International Mail Art

Through Fri 2/2

Mail art, or postal art, has been around since the 1950s. It involves a curator or organizer putting out a call for people to create some sort of work on a postcard or envelope and (usually) mail it to a central source.

Often there’s a unifying particular theme and so it is with the Cantor Museum of Art’s community art mail project, which celebrates global cultures and traditions. It’s asking participants to use their art to answer the question “What do you love about where you live?”

The museum is inviting participants from anywhere in the world to submit their work on a 4 x 6 or 5 x7 inch card. There’s no entry fee, no juried and works will not be returned. All works submitted will be part of CMA’s World Fair event Sat 2/10, and some will be featured on the museum’s website at

Send your submissions by Fri 2/2
with your name, email and title of the artwork to
