A demonstration to support the 225 yr old U.S. Postal Service & the right to VOTE
In light of the threat to our postal service, at a time that could jeopardize the democracy of the country, let's join forces for this collective postcard art demonstration
What can I send?
Here's what Mark Mothersbaugh and Beatie Wolfe have been mailing...
...but you can make and mail any postcard design/statement you want!

Recycled from the Mylar walls of her Victoria and Albert museum installation (the Raw Space Chamber), Beatie Wolfe's postcard art is also embedded with a microchip which when tapped takes you to the 360° AR Raw Space world
Hold on, I've another question...
Q. I want to post it to a friend, does that still work?
A. Yes, post it to your pal but take a photo/scan of the design and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Q. Should we avoid posting around the election?
A. Yes, while the USPS sorts and delivers 470+ million pieces of mail each day it would be good to refrain from putting your postcards in the mailbox for the fortnight either side of the election (Nov 3rd). That said keep buying those stamps and making your postcards, just hold off posting during that period.
Q. What should be on the postcard?
A. Other than a stamp, anything that you like, from a statement to a poem to a doodle to a design incorporating an old sticker you found in your wallet. And you don’t have to be an artist!
Q. Is this a non-profit?
A. Yes, this is an art demonstration and if any profits are raised they’ll go to art/vote enrollment charities.
Q. Is this open to the rest of the world?
A. Yes, anyone, of any age, from anywhere, can do it.
Q. I’ve got an even weirder question?
A. Then email email@example.com and we’ll give it a go.
I’m in! But one last time, what do we do?
Just make & mail your original postcard creations (you can also recycle an existing one!) to “Postcards for Democracy, 8760 Sunset Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90069-2206, USA”
email/social us a photo of the card too (if you can)
