The Pink Mail Art show is finished, but yesterday I found one last piece waiting for me in my P.O. Box.  Fiorentina Ginannotta’s piece took almost eight weeks to get to San Francisco form Italy!   Oh Poste Itaiane…….

Lena G. mailed her piece  with plenty of time to spare from Sacramento.  Alas, it just arrived after six weeks. I suspect it was waiting just a few boxes away for me the entire time – probably in a box that is rarely checked.  It is a nice one, so I wanted to be sure to share it online.

I’ve notice that mail from Brazil tends to take its time, and this piece for the Pink Mail Art Show from Glória de Oliveira Souza was no exception.  Mailed weeks ago, it just arrived when I checked my P.O. box for one last time this afternoon before tomorrow’s install in Sacramento.  So obrigado Glória — I am glad your mail art made it.  And thank you again to all the 400 artists who have sent pink mail art.
