Visual Poetry Mail Art

Received from C. Mehrl Bennett:
CALL for MAIL ART
THEME: VISUAL POETRY
DEADLINE: August 1st, 2010
 

Mail Art received will be exhibited at SKYLAB in downtown Columbus OH USA during August 2010 during the Avant Writing Symposium at The Ohio State University (symposium is being organized by my spouse, John M Bennett- curator of the Avant Writing Collection-part of OSU library's Rare Books & MSS Library).  As a tribute to John, who will retire from OSU sometime around the end of this year, SKYLAB will concurrently exhibit a retrospective of JMB's visual poetry. Our son, John Also Bennett, the main curator for SKYLAB, will install JMB's vispo show, and I'll install the mail art show & do the documentation. A collaboration table set up by Jim Leftwich and other performances will happen at SKYLAB Saturday night (time TBA) August 21st during the Avant Writing Symposium- so some participants from the OSU Avant Writing Symposium will be there and will see the mail art show...and may even send in their own contributions. Hopefully, I'll have lists of addresses available as handouts to anyone who might want to start or carry on m.a. correspondences with participants in the m.a. show. Feel free to include blog or website addresses you'd like to share, along with your mailing address or email address.
