A Book About Death

A Book About Death is an exhibition of mail art by hundreds of different artists. It originated in New York last year, where each of the 500 participants received a copy of the other 499 artists' contributions. Thus all 500 artists not only collected the show's entire catalogue but are now able to restage A Book About Death at new places and with additions from new artists.

With Sheila Dollente and Bibiana Padilla Maltos bringing the exhibition to SDSU-Calexico's Steppling Gallery this week, I've had the chance to add my own work to the show and am very excited to be involved in it. It opens on Wednesday, March 10 at 6:30 p.m.
