April 23, 2023 – Los Angeles: Artists For A Better World International is pleased to announce the successful close of its 2023 Global Call for Mail Art campaign. The campaign, which ran from August 16, 2022, to April 15, 2023, invited artists from around the world to create and submit mail art based on the theme of “Artistic Integrity.”
AFABW Int received its all-time highest mail art response, going back over twenty years, with artists from numerous countries submitting a wide range of mail art styles and mediums, including sketches, drawings, collages, paintings and mixed media works.
“We are thrilled with the diversity and response to our Global Call for Mail Art campaign,” said Jeannette Hay, founder of the group.
President of the group, George Alger added, “The creativity and passion shown by the participating artists is a testament to the power of artists to inspire hope and promote positive change in the world.”
Selections from the submissions will be featured throughout the year on the local cable television series, Our Ventura TV, as well as on the AFABW Int website and social media.
