CALL TO ARTISTS:

LULA’s Global Mail Art Exhibition: “Lake Worth 100”

Calligraphers and artists  are invited to participate in LULA’s Global Mail Art Exhibition: Lake Worth 100. Mail art is the most democratic form of art. The direct exchange of creativework is a worldwide cultural movement that began in the early 1960’s and involves sending visual art on envelopes.  Traveling the world through mail art can be a rewarding experience that operates within a spirit of “anything goes” which brings to the surface everybody’s creative side.
