Get in on Lake Worth's Mail Art project

I am sure AnnaMaria Windisch-Hunt's hand is in this Mail Art project that the City of Lake Worth is putting on for their Centennial Celebration. July 1, 2013 is the entry deadline, if you would like to participate. You can get info and see some of the cool entries here.

This reminds me of our mail art project in Coconut Grove in 2009. AnnaMaria ran that from her gallery. I remember her dragging me to the post office to mail off some mail art and insisting on having the stamps hand stamped. So while there was a long line of people, which is always the case at the Grove branch post office, I took photos as she insisted the clerk find the hand stamp and stamp the stamps the good old fashioned way!


I fondly remember the red shoe, which came in as mail art. The mailman literally brought in a red high heel with stamps on it, it came from Germany that way!

Speaking of AnnaMaria, you all will remember her from the Windisch-Hunt Gallery on Grand Avenue, where it seemed like that was the center of the Grove for such a long time. AnnaMaria is in Lake Worth now and does this cool blog, one of my fav's called Lake Worth Every Minute. It was up for a New Times Best of Award recently. Check it out, she really puts her heart and soul into the blog and it shows.
