UK singer Beatie Wolfe (interviewed by John Robb here) is about to launch a cool new project Devo man Mark Mothersbaugh called Postcards for Democracy.
It’s a collective art/design demonstration to support USPS (at this critical point), the right to vote and the power of art to connect and mobilise, especially in the lockdown.
POSTCARDS FOR DEMOCRACY – An art demonstration to support the 225yr old US Postal Service & the right to VOTE
- Artistic visionaries Mark Mothersbaugh & Beatie Wolfe share a love of tangible artforms, in and amongst their futuristic explorations.
- In light of the threat to our 225yr old postal service, at a time that could jeopardize the democracy of the country, Mothersbaugh and Wolfe join forces for this collective postcard art demonstration.
- The aim of this campaign is to encourage as many people as possible to support USPS (at this critical time), our right to vote, and democracy as a whole via the power of art. The demonstration asks you to buy USPS stamps, design a postcard, and then mail it to 8760 Sunset Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90069.
- The postcards will become part of a collective art piece – presented in both a physical gallery and virtual space – art directed by Mothersbaugh and Wolfe.
