National Post Card Week 2014 “Florida Storm Sewer”

April 13th, 2014

“FLORIDA STORM SEWER” (detail)

Florida Storm Sewer is the second of my Florida Trio Post Cards for NPCW. This art is cropped from the original art to fit the post card dimensions.

National Post Card Week is celebrated annually during the first full week of  May.  Since 1991, I have been a participant, sending out a post card usually based on one of my manhole cover  relief works. See my collection:  Bobbi Mastrangelo- Postcards -”The Grate Works” -transforms manhole covers, sewers and grates into artistic streetscapes.

I exchange post cards with over 130 post card pen pals and save their creations in binder notebooks. Demaris Swint has posted the 2013 NPCW cards: http://www.nationalpostcardweek.com/2013.php  Watch for the 2014 update.

Your comments and questions about National Post Card Week are very welcome.
