CORRESPONDENCE ART: SCHOOL SWAP
Sunday, May 8, 2:30–4PM
Main Lobby, 2nd Floor, Charleston County Public Library, 68 Calhoun St.

The Halsey Institute partnered with seven area public K-12 schools for an education and outreach program designed around the Halsey Institute’s exhibition Correspondence Art: Words, Objects and Images by Ray Johnson, Richard C. and Bob Ray. A total of 180 students visited the Halsey Institute for a guided tour of the exhibition and to meet with artist-in-residence, Bob Ray. The students were introduced to the concept of correspondence art (or mail art) and had an opportunity to create their own. The culmination of this project is an exhibition of the student-created mail art.
