Post Haste – An Art Project April 30, 2012

When was the last time you got a handwritten letter in the mail? In response to the proposed closure of 3,700 post offices and the layoffs to follow, eight Bay Area artists were invited to use the U.S. Postal Service as an analogy for decaying public institutions and our relationship to civil engagement in a digital age. The exhibition, Post Haste, will include new media, mixed media, sculpture and participatory works. It will be open to the public at the MacArthur B Arthur Gallery in Oakland, CA, from May 4 to 28 and is curated by Jayna Swartzman.


Post Haste


The U.S. Postal Service has struggled to remain relevant since the advent of digital media. Today, lightning-fast communication has replaced old-fashioned civilities, like physical correspondence and direct human interaction, because they often seem cumbersome and archaic in comparison. Post Haste examines these orphaned systems, like the Post Office, that once relied on actual, genuine human beings who are now being replaced by automated, whizz-bang electronic processes.

The artists in Post Haste will explore the USPS as a public service, through both traditional and contemporary methods, looking at civic centerpieces and government mechanisms that are no longer — at least physically — as present as they once were in ordinary life.

Letter Writing for Trains! January 22, 2010

In response to growing demand from California residents for a statewide grassroots group focused solely on supporting the California High Speed Rail (HSR) project approved by voters in November 2008, Californians For High Speed Rail (CA4HSR) today announced it is launching a statewide effort to bring together individual supporters of the HSR project to provide a stronger and louder collective voice in support of HSR.

Read the entire article here.

They are writing letters to support their cause to get the train project back on track.

Through social media tools, our action alerts, letter writing campaigns to legislators, pledge campaigns, local advocacy teams and public events, CA4HSR strives to expand broad grassroots support for HSR.

There is a petition to “Keep Fighting for HSR”: CA4HSR is collecting signatures from pro-HSR Californians to deliver a “keep fighting for HSR” letter to the State Senate Transportation Committee here: http://www.ca4hsr.org/advocacy/sign-the-hsr-needs-your-help-letter/

They are also planning a letter-writing campaign and asking our members to join us in advocating for sufficient federal funding for HSR and for California’s HSR project.

You see writing letters is an effective way to build up steam for a cause, power things forward, and keep the train on it’s tracks.
