COVID Card #170

October 22, 2020 | 0 comments

Is anybody going to Santa Fe? Olive Rush moved to Santa Fe 15 years before Georgia O’Keefe did. Her home became a popular spot with artists. Her interest in Native American and Mexican art and artifacts may have earned her the precarious moniker of Cultural Appropriator today, but as her love led her to become a long-time promoter Native art and artists, perhaps she’d escape the Callout Culture trap that we are so familiar with today. Then again, no good deed goes unpunished…

Ms. Rush painted two post office murals: Antelope (Florence, Colorado) and Osage Treaties (Pawhuska, Oklahoma).

If you are looking for something to read (for free, courtesy of the Evil Empire Google), you can see some of Ms. Rush’s illustration work in the book Rolinda.

The United States Postal Service has been hit hard by the pandemic. Controlling elements of the Federal Government (the president and Republican Senate) do not want to provide aid to the service. So, it’s up to us. It may seem insignificant, but if we all sent just a few letters a week, we could help ensure that our daily, free mail delivery service continues. For the past (see the card number above) days, I have drawn a card each day and mailed it to someone the next day (none are sent on Sundays; two are sent on Mondays). Please consider mailing cards and letters while we still can for 55 cents (first class letter postage). If the USPS fails, you could find it costs $8 or more to send a letter. And that’s just one of the ways we will all lose if the USPS shuts down.
