A collaboration between the Frank Juarez Gallery and SchoolArts Magazine

Milwaukee, Wisconsin – The Frank Juarez Gallery, SchoolArts Magazine, and Sheboygan North High School is pleased to announce a collaborative online exhibition titled, “Pushing the Envelope: A Mail Art Exhibition”. This physical and online exhibition features over 100 works of art from local, regional, national, and international art educators.

This online exhibition runs from September 8 – October 31, 2020.

Since April 2020, Nancy Walkup, editor of SchoolArts Magazine and Frank Juarez, art educator, gallery owner, and contributing editor of SchoolArts Magazine have been working on organizing an exhibition that provided art educators from across the globe the opportunity to respond to this global pandemic through their art and how it has impacted the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year both professionally and personally. In addition, to support the United States Post Office with envelope size mail art.

Walkup writes, “The idea came from an initial desire to help the post office and to give teachers an engaging way to express their responses to the coronavirus. I had been involved in previous mail art exhibitions and found them to be fun and quickly created due to the small size.”

From June to the end of July, 108 submissions were received from Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, Wyoming; China, Germany, Japan.
