MAIL ART ROULETTE: an artist-supported fundraiser for local food banks
Mon, May 04 - Mon, May 11, All Day
Update: Together we raised over $6,200 with Mail Art Roulette, which was distributed to food banks in Walton, Delhi, Margaretville, Stamford, and Andes/Bovina, as well as to Star Route Farm and The 607 CSA to support their donations to local food banks. Thank you to everyone who participated! View a slide show of some of the mail art that participants made and received here.
From May 4 through May 11, join artist Angela Dufresne, Bushel, and 60+ contributing artists to help raise much-needed funds for the food banks that are supporting Delaware Country residents hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic. 100% of proceeds will go to the food banks, with a portion dedicated to add fresh local produce to their offerings. On Monday evening, May 11 from 8-9pmEST, Angela Dufresne will host a closing ‘video-thon’ event with streaming performances by Jennifer Coates & David Humphrey, Tim Davis, Darien Brahms, Guy Richards Smit & Rebecca Chamberlain, and who knows what else — tune in to see!
What is Mail Art Roulette? The artists on the list below have very generously agreed to donate a piece of mail art to the first 66 people who contribute $50 or more to the fund. Donors and artists will be matched by random draw, and the pieces will be mailed through our beloved (and beleaguered) US Postal Service.
