"The MUSEUM OF POSTCARD ART - Update 6 Oct. 2020!!!" by Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)

in #art2 months ago (edited)

Greetings Citizens,

It’s time for another update to the EVERLASTING and EVER EXPANDING Museum of Postcard Art! Normally, I would go through a huge explanation for what this project is about, how the “points” are figured, and all that jazz. This time, though, I’m just going to share the POSTCARDS. If you want to read the rules, check out my LAST update: HERE

[5 points – fills Museum of Postcard Art #5 book!]

And that’s all I was able to scan…for now!!! (I’m hoping to get more pieces archived over the next two or three days!)

As of last update, The Museum of Postcard Art had 107 officially inducted cards and a total score of 265 points. (Again, check the previous update for what I’m talking about with this “score” thing---because I’m just trying to GET THIS POST OUT. I’ve been working on it for a week, and I just need to get it PUBLISHED!) After this update, we now have 120 officially inducted cards and a total score of: 307

I’m happy with that. And I’m happy that I’m finally getting this bugger out! It’s already time for the NEXT update!!!! Ha!!!

[P.S. - With all of this talk about rushing the post to get it out and being bizzy, I feel like I've minimized the awesomeness of the artwork and connections that come with these pieces. I LOVE all of these works (otherwise, they wouldn't be going into the collection!) And I definitely appreciate the creativity and thoughtfulness of the folks who are sending postcards this direction! It's wonderful to feel like we still have friends (COOL friends!!!) and loved ones, even if we rarely get to SEE them in person anymore! SOMEDAY, all this shit will be over---and the HEAVENS WILL QUAKE from the FORCE of the FUCKING PARTY WE THROW TO CELEBRATE!!! Amen...]
