Last night was the opening reception for the 22nd Annual Pink Week. There was a big crowd. It was great meeting some of the artists who participated. A big thank you to every artist who mailed work for the Pink Mail Art Show from all over the world. Making art can be a solitary pursuit, but putting on a show like this is a collaborative effort. Along with the artists I want to thank the crew at the Clayton Street branch of the U.S. Postal Service, friends who schlepped me to and from Sacarmento and helped with the install, all of you who promoted the show online and in the media, the San Francisco Correspondence Coop and especially everyone who came up and helped make the mail art making event happen this week at the Crocker Art Museum, as well the museum for hosting the event, Dana Iske and the folks at WAL (Warehouse Artists Lofts) for hosting the Pink Week exhibit and a special thank you for the amazing Gioia Fonda who has been making this happen for 22 years!
Go see the show! It’s on view at WAL (Warehouse Artists Lofts) at 1108 R Street in Sacramento until December 10, 2015.
