COVID Card #322

March 23, 2021 | 0 comments

A little more information about Theresa Bernstein is available online than most of the female post office muralists. City University of New York devotes a subdomain to the artist. You can see some examples of her work at the websites for the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the National Gallery. There is even (hold on to your knickers — is that a saying??) a BOOK of her work. Pardon me for a moment whilst I go shopping because if I need anything in my life, it’s another art book…

Bernstein created one post office mural: The First Orchestra in America (Manheim, Pennsylvania).

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.
