National Post Card Week 2013 “City of Orlando”

Saturday, April 27th, 2013

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

Many fascinating themes can be viewed on this website: National Postcard Week 2013 – Postcard Swap (Exchange) – ButterflyInTheAttic

About “City of Orlando”  Even before I became a full time resident of Florida, The Orlando Museum of Art, was a favorite “tourist site” with its fascinating art collections. Loch Haven Park’s adjacent antique brick roadway was artful as well.

“City of Orlando” was exhibited in their competition: “Sculpture, the Ultimate Process.” http://bobbimastrangelo.com/MyNews/?p=2200  on January 5, 2012 along with “Buckeye Water Meter Pit Cover” and “Reuse.” Bobbi Mastrangelo-Gallery-Sculpture Relief Small.

National Post Card Week 2012

National Post Card Week is celebrated annually during the first full week of May. I correspond with almost two-hundred post card pen pals in The United States and abroad. Each year I choose one of my sculptures or art happenings to be reproduced  as a post card for NPCW. This year’s  image is the third in a black and white series:

2010 featured Art Carney as Ed Norton emerging from a sewer.

2011 a  Ford Water Meter Pit Cover is based on  my original dark room developed photo.

2012 is a portrait of myself in front of my sculpture relief.  Ed Norton worked in the NYC Sewers and my “Borough of Manhattan,” is based on an actual New York City Grate.  Text on the frontispiece:
