One September morning.

I remember.

Remember September Mail Art Call:

Remember September is a mail art project which was developed by Gail Ellspermann to commemorate, on an annual basis, the tragic attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001. The idea is to decorate an envelope with artwork remembering and honoring the victims, rescue workers, and countless volunteers affected by 9/11. Then, bring it to your post office on September 11 and ask for a hand cancel.

The envelopes will never be opened so you may include a private note, poem, or prayer as part of your memorial. The envelopes are being collected and will be exhibited at various venues.

Create a piece of "mail art" on any size envelope which is relevant to 9/11, the victims, heroes, and/or events of the day.

Use any type of media, such as: collage, digital art, crayon, marker, pencil, paint

Address your envelope to: Remember September, PO Box 793, Katonah, NY 10536

Mail your envelope on September 11, 2008, if at all possible. Please mail no later than 9/18/07.

Include your name and snail mail address on the BACK of the envelope to be included in a mailing of posters of the 2008 submissions and to be entered into a drawing for a free CD of all images (100 will be given away)
