Art is a Healing Force

Mail Art Salon 2016 - 2017
Open Call

“The country is so wounded, bleeding, and hurt right now. The country needs to be healed—it's not going to be healed from the top, politically. How are we going to heal? Art is the healing force.”
Robert Redford
National Arts Policy Roundtable 2012

This is a season for healing.  A time to slow down for a moment and let the power of making and sharing art heal us. 

This project is a call for all artists to make a little piece of art and mail it to someone who may not be expecting it.  Take a photo of the piece you make and post it Then post a photo online with the hash-tag #MailArtSalon

In addition to sending art to someone who may never have received art in the mail before, you may submit original works to the sponsor at the address below.

  • Original artwork only; no photocopies or reproductions
  • Postcards; 4” x 6” or 5” x 7”
  • All media and techniques welcome
  • Multiple entries allowed
  • Each entry must be individually submitted through the postal system; no email or online entries accepted.
  • No fees, no jury, no returns.

Please include your name, mailing address and email address with each work submitted. Title of the work and medium are encouraged but not required.

A list of participants will be compiled and provided to participants by email after the submission deadline.  If you do not want your contact details (postal and email address) to be included please let us know.
