Mail Art Movement

Mail Art is a global artistic movement centered on sending small-scale artworks through the postal service.

Media commonly used in Mail Art includes postcards, paper, rubber stamps, artist-created stamps (called artistamps), photography and paint, but can also include music, sound art, poetry, or anything that can be put in an envelope and sent via global postal services, such as a collage of recycled images and objects.

Mail art is considered art once it is sent.
