COVID Card #246

January 6, 2021 | 0 comments

I’m sure that being called fun is not the greatest aspiration of most artists, but I can’t help it. Aaron Bohrod’s work (at least his later work) was fun. I am amused by silly and dark and surreal — especially when they’re all together in the same place. I do not apologize for this. I admit it proudly. Examples of his earlier(ish) work can be seen at the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s website. Examples of his later work are not readily found at any one website, but can be seen on various auction sites.

Bohrod painted three post office murals: Clinton in Winter (Clinton, Illinois), Breaking the Prairie (Galesburg, Illinois) and Old State Capitol Building (Vandalia, Illinois).

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.
