Send Your Visual Art to AFABW for the ART DAY Card Project

May 10, 2007 – Hollywood: International ART DAY is celebrated annually on the second Friday of August. What will you do to honor artistic expression this year? Whatever you do, you can also mail AFABW ART DAY greeting cards to your friends and loved ones to forward the cause of celebrating creativity!

And before you can obtain your own AFABW ART DAY greeting cards, we need to create them…and we’d like to consider your visual art for potential placement in the cards!

Here is how you can participate:

A. Mail or eMail your ART DAY submission and contact details to AFABW by July 5, 2007. The theme is “CELEBRATING CREATIVITY.”

B. Selected artwork will be featured in ART DAY cards, which will be available for purchase in the AFABW online store (see link at top of page), by the end of July.

C. Purchase your cards from the AFABW online store by the end of July and mail one out to everyone you know by ART DAY, which is the second Friday in August (this year ART DAY is on August 10th).
