COVID Card #265

January 25, 2021 | 0 comments

Marguerite Zorach was one of the few really prolific female post office muralists (at least by www standards). The Zorach Collection, the estate of Marguerite and her husband, exists to this day. In addition to painting, Marguerite was a textile artist and graphic designer. You can see some of her work at the Smithsonian American Art Museum website.

Marguerite painted three post office murals: Haymaking (Monticello, Indiana), New Hampshire Post in Winter (Peterborough, New Hampshire), and Autumn (Ripley, Tennessee).

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.
