April 19, 2021 | 0 comments

Jean Paul Slusser is a well known name in Ann Arbor, Michigan and my (and his) alma mater, the University of Michigan School of Art and Architecture. He was a professor at the University of Michigan, Director of the University of Michigan Museum of Art, and was a founder of the popular Ann Arbor Street Fair. You can see examples of his work at the websites for the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Broad Museum at Michigan State University, and the Wayne State University Art Collection.

Slusser created one post office mural: Laying the Erie and Kalamazoo Railroad (Blissfield, Michigan).

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.
