COVID Card #325

March 26, 2021 | 0 comments

Marion Greenwood was part of a family of artists, so it is no surprise that her career choice was supported by her family. The influence of Mexican muralists on her work is quite apparent. You can hear part of an interview with Greenwood via the Smithsonian’s Archive of American Art. Examples of her work can be seen at websites for the University of Arizona Museum of Art, the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, the Portland Art Museum, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and the Met. Bonus: Alexander Calder made a brass wire portrait of Greenwood and you can see it at the MoMA’s website.

Greenwood made one post office mural: The Partnership of Man and Nature (Crossville, 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.
