We are excited to invite you to participate in postcards4oscar, an art exhibition and fundraiser for the freedom of Puerto Rican political prisoner Oscar López Rivera, who has been in prison for over 32 years. We hope that you will consider participating in this important event that will help to raise awareness for Oscar’s release and we invite you to contribute to this unique invitational exhibition, and sale of original art.
postcards4oscar is a fundraising exhibition showcasing artists’ work from throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico. Artists will submit 4” x 6” works of art on a postcard that we will provide. The artwork will be exhibited anonymously (signed on back) and sold on a first-come, first-served basis for $50. Only after selecting and purchasing a piece will a buyer learn the identity of the artist. Artists may work in any medium or style and may submit more than one postcard if so desired.
The exhibition will take place in New York at the Julia de Burgos Cultural Center on May 24th, with an Artist Preview Event on May 23rd.
Final submissions of artwork must be received by May 12th.
If you would like to participate in the postcards4oscar exhibition and fundraiser, please reply to this email ASAP: firstname.lastname@example.org
Once we receive your confirmation, we will mail you an exhibition packet with further instructions and we will include a blank postcard and stamped return envelope.
*Please include your mailing address in your reply to this email.
Thank you in advance for your generous support of this event. We look forward to hearing from you!
