CALL for ENTRIES: Global Mail Art
I am obsessed with food because I love the TASTE of food. I am not into eating foods for the sake of saying that I have eaten them. Century eggs are a perfect example. I cannot think of a reason to eat a 100-year-old egg that has been preserved in clay, ash and lime. Telling me that the yolk has the smell of sulfur and ammonia does not make me any more likely to want to eat it. Someone else already has a job eating Bizarre Foods, so I’ll pass. This next Call is a much better way to celebrate 100 years. Take a look…
Check out this Call for Entries from LULA Lake Worth Arts for the Global Mail Art Exhibition in celebration of Lake Worth Florida’s Centennial Celebration. This is an all-hung show that might help some of you pad your resumes. Plus, mail art is fun. I love to see what I can get the US Postal system to take….

CALL for ENTRIES:
Global Mail Art
Calligraphers and artists are invited to participate in LULA’s Global Mail Art Exhibition: Lake Worth 100. Mail art is the most democratic form of art. The direct exchange of creative work is a worldwide cultural movement that began in the early 1960’s and involves sending visual art on envelopes. Traveling the world through mail art can be a rewarding experience that operates within a spirit of “anything goes” which brings to the surface everybody’s creative side.
Decorated envelopes are one-of-a-kind artworks with the handwritten address becoming part of the work. Please join LULA and send a decorated envelope as we celebrate Lake Worth’s Centennial.
ELIGIBILITY: Open to all artists
MEDIA: Mail art. Please use hand-executed lettering to address your envelope. You may use paint, ink, colored pencil, rubber stamps, or other standard media for illustrations on your envelope.
NOTIFICATION: Sign your envelope in the bottom right hand corner on back and include your email address and they will notify you of it’s arrival.
ENTRY FEE: None
JURY: None (all hung)
AWARDS: All mail art will be exhibited throughout Downtown Lake Worth during the Centennial year and linked to the Lake Worth Centennial web site, the City of Lake Worth web site, and can be viewed on the LULA’s Global Mail Art Exhibition: Lake Worth 100 Facebook page.
