September 25, 2023 – Los Angeles: This is the third of a number of announcements and videos featuring selected submissions from the Artists For a Better World International 2023 Global Call for Mail Art.
(For current mail art submission opportunities, visit our Mail Art page.)
This year’s theme was “Artistic Integrity,” in recognition of the artist’s ability to inspire the world through the authenticity of their own vision.
In the coming weeks and months, subsequent announcements and videos will present more of this year’s featured selections. We were thrilled to have received the largest-ever number of mail art submissions this year, and we are grateful to all of the global artists who participated. Although we will be broadcasting more than ever on TV, we are unable to feature all of the wonderful work that was received.
The above 1-minute video will be broadcast on cable television the week of October 8, 2023, as part of the Our Ventura TV series.
To stay apprised of AFABW Int “Calls for Mail Art,” and to be notified of more featured selections as they are posted, be sure to sign up for our free ART LINE email announcements.
