YOUNGSTOWN — Youngstown State University’s Department of Art will have its third annual High School Mail Art Show through Nov. 15 in the Judith Rae Solomon Gallery in Bliss Hall.

Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Mail art is an artistic movement focused on sending small-scale works through the postal service. It was developed in the 1950’s as a means for artists to connect with other artists.

High school juniors and seniors from school districts in Northeast Ohio and western Pennsylvania were invited to create an image on thick paper the size of a postcard that could be sent through the mail. More than 150 postcards featuring a variety of media and themes were entered and judged by Department of Art professors Claudia Berlinski and Christine McCullough.

Parking is available in the M30 Wick Avenue parking deck for a nominal fee. For information, call the Office of Community Engagement and Events at 330-941-2307.
