Mailbag Art

As an experiment, artist Sarah Musi sent blank postcards to forty-five famous artists. She invited them to create art with the postcards and mail them back:

So I had this thought the other day: what if I made little pieces of art and sent them to a bunch of famous artists, along with a tiny blank canvas for them to create something and return it? Would I get anything back? Would they even read my request?

Pictured above is the response from cut paper artist Jayme McGowan.

People do this all the time, it is not a new concept. It is called Mail Art Exchange. Artists exchange with each other, friends, kids. I had an exchange going with myself and a bunch of my art school friends, until we all got to busy to continue.
