COVID Card #182

November 3, 2020 | 0 comments

Victoria Hutson Huntley studied under some pretty fancy people, like Max Weber (the artist, not the sociologist). The National Gallery holds several of her lithographs, including the on-topic piece Rural Free Delivery. If she were alive today, I’d send her a COVID Card. Why not?

The Georgia Museum of Art is hosting an exhibit of Ms. Huntley’s work in 2021, but lucky for you (that’s not something we say a lot these days, is it?) you can see it right now. Just click.

Ms. Huntley painted two post office murals: Old Days in Greenwich (Greenwich, Connecticut) and Fiddler’s Green (Springville, New York). You can view some studies for the latter at the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s website.

Cards 1-100

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.
