The Mail Art Experiment

The Mail Art Experiment is a collaborative mail art project that began at the Crozet post office and grew to include over 40 artists from 12 countries and 16 states. Each piece is based on a page from a stack of beautifully handwritten notes found at a local estate sale. Artists altered the papers with a range of techniques including: collage, watercolor and oil painting, pen and ink, colored pencil, rubber stamping, stitching, printmaking, and digital printing before returning them to Crozet.
