November 3, 2010 – Hollywood: Artists For A Better World International has published a video of the selected works to represent the 2010 AFABW Int Mail Art campaign. The selections of hand-decorated postcards, cards and envelopes comprise a variety of global perspectives of the Mail Art genre.
The theme for the campaign was “Celebrate Artists.”
AFABW Int President, George Alger said, “In addition to honoring artists, this Mail Art campaign was designed to raise awareness for the establishment of an international holiday for the arts, referred to as ‘ART DAY,’ which is celebrated on the second Friday in each August.” (This year’s 12th annual Art Day was on August 13, 2010).
