|Is the USPS still a vital service? Some claim it should be defunded, reorganized, or relegated to the dustbin of history. And yet so many others rely on the postal system to get essential medications, submit legal documents, send cards to loved ones, make art, and perhaps most pertinently, vote in elections. The post means many different things to different people. What does it mean to you?
As debates about the Postal Service have become front-page news in the context of COVID-19 social distancing protocols and the upcoming election, this mail art exhibition seeks contributions that visualize the meaning of the USPS to its diverse patrons.
