COVID Card 305

March 6, 2021 | 0 comments

Verona Burkhard comes from a family of artists. Her grandfather, Giovanni Turini, created sculptures for New York’s Washington Square and Central Parks. She studied under Boardman Robinson, a post office muralist featured earlier. You can see a couple of her mural studies at the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s website. You can also see one of her paintings at the website for the Art Center of Western Colorado (though someone forgot to complete the page, leaving behind the telltale sign of a designer who hasn’t been given content; in my other life, I’m a web developer; give me a shout ACWC, I can help).

Burkhard created three post office murals: James and Granville Stuart Prospecting in Deer Lodge Valley – 1858 (Deer Lodge, Montana), Battle of Kings Mountain (Kings Mountain, North Carolina), and Powell’s Agriculture Resulting for the Shoshone Irrigation Project (Powell, Wyoming).

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.
