COVID Card #179

October 31, 2020 | 0 comments

Works by William Meyerowitz in a variety of genres can be seen — and purchased — on the www. Prior to this project, I was unaware of how much art could be purchased via the web. With some artists, auction sites are the only places to see work on the web. Perhaps you (whoever you are) could start an online Museum of Web-Auctioned Art so that these pieces can continue to be viewed long after they’ve been sold.

Have you noticed a pattern in my digressions?

The Smithsonian American Art Museum owns some of Meyerowitz’s work and displays it on its website, as does the Cape Ann Museum.

Meyerowitz painted one post office mural: The Post Road in Connecticut (Clinton, Connecticut).

Card 179 was inspired by some of Meyerowitz’s paintings and a sculpture. I won’t link to the sculpture because it’s on an auction site and I try to avoid linking to those as the links are more likely to break over time than others. You can easily find it via a web search.

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.
