Bobbi Mastrangelo and Her NPCW Post Card Collection

In 2015 I affiliated with American Art Collector who published 1,000 post cards of each artist’s work each year.  From 1991 to 2015, I had been sending, saving and filing post cards related to National Post Card Week (NPCW).  After 24 years, I decided to donate my collections and concentrate on my art career. Post Card Enthusiasts and Deltiologists will be able to view the whole collection at The Yorktown NY Museum: Yorktownmuseum.org

You are welcome to receive Free Post Cards from my older collection or American Art Collector Post Cards.  Send a SASE for Four Free Cards or two stamps for Eight Free Post Cards.  E-mail me for my address: grateworks@aol.com.  Many of these post cards cards are still available: http://bobbimastrangelo.com/postcards.php

2015 NPCW “The City Beautiful” (Orlando, Florida) by Bobbi Mastrangelo

The City Beautiful

NPCW 2015 “The City Beautiful”

“The City Beautiful is the third of my Florida Post Cards Trio for NPCW.  Orlando, The Theme Park Capital of the World, and one of our most visited cities, appealed to me for its dedication to the Arts.

Orlando’s impressive City Hall houses two public art galleries. The Terrace Gallery features national and international artists and collections, as well as Florida artists of renown. The Mayor’s 3rd Floor Gallery is specifically dedicated to Central Florida artists. Supported by private philanthropy, See Art Orlando is the permanent installation of nine contemporary public art sculptures in Downtown Orlando.

During the summer of 2014, my art was displayed on the third floor Mayor’s Gallery at City Hall with all the winners of Orlando Museum of Art’s First Thursday’s Exhibition: “Best of the Best” http://bobbimastrangelo.com/MyNews/?p=4377 

The beautiful circular gallery space was impressive. The colorful City Logo posted next to the Mayor” Door inspired me. The actual city logo-manhole cover out on the streets is not colored, just plain rust-toned. So, influenced by “The City Beautiful” and the colorful Japanese Manhole Covers, I created my first manhole cover sculpture in color and posted the image on my 2015 NPCW Post Card.

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 that is usually based on one of my manhole cover relief works.http://bobbimastrangelo.com/postcards.php  Here is The Mastrangelo National Post Card Week Collection on Pinterest :https://www.pinterest.com/bmastrangelo/npcw-collection-for-bobbi-mastrangelo

I exchange post cards with over 130 post card pen pals and save their creations in binder notebooks. Demaris Swint has posted the 2015 post cards for  National Post Card Week on this site: http://www.nationalpostcardweek.com/2015.php
