COVID Card #278

February 7, 2021 | 0 comments

Swiss-born Lucienne Bloch was an artist and an innovator. She is considered a pioneer in the design of glass sculpture.

Having grown up in Michigan and lived in Detroit for several years, Bloch’s Detroit depictions are meaningful to me.

Bloch spent a lot of time with Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera (she married Rivera’s plasterer) and may be best known for being the only person to have photographed Diego’s 30 Rock mural before it was destroyed, unfinished, in 1934.

Bloch created one post office mural: General G. H. Thomas and Philip Sheridan (Fort Thomas, Kentucky).

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.
