Mail Art for Martin Luther King Day

Welcome to Mailart for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!

2008 will mark 40 years since the passing of Dr. King. Please share in an exciting, collaborative mailart project in honor of this human rights leader. Our goal is to receive a minimum of 500 mailart submissions from around the world, so please pass the word around. The submitted pieces of mailart will be exhibited at an educational workshop on the weekend of January 19th and 20th, 2008, in Medford, Oregon, U.S.A. The entire community will be invited to participate! Stay tuned to this website for more details.

WHAT IS MAILART? It is any creation you send through the mail. In this case, we ask that it be a postcard related to the theme of "We Are One Human Family!" For more information, go to the links listed below to view other mailart projects and sites.
