COVID Card #259

January 19, 2021 | 0 comments

Card 259 was inspired by Zoltan Sepeshy. Sepeshy was a Hungarian immigrant who spent much of his life in my home state of Michigan. You can see examples of his work online at the Cranbrook Art Museum and the Smithsonian American Art Museum.

My not-so-trusty Wikipedia list of post office muralists credits Zoltan with one post office mural: Barnyard (Nashville, Illinois). But I happened upon this fantastic story about a mural called Hauling in the Net, which was originally in the Lincoln Park, Michigan post office.

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.
