For this project, 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. Following their visit, the Halsey Institute’s Education Coordinator visited each school to lead the students in a correspondence art activity and these artworks were mailed to students at their partner school.
The culmination of this project is an exhibition of the student-created mail art on display at the Charleston County Public Library in downtown Charleston. For questions, email Maya McGauley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
