Postcards for Democracy - a collective art project by Devo's Mark Mothersbaugh & Beatie Wolfe

  • Beatie Wolfe

A collective art demonstration to support the US Postal Service (at this critical point), the right to vote, and the power of art to mobilise and connect - especially in the lockdown. To join in and be part of this collective art piece visit: or read more below

  • Artistic visionaries Mark Mothersbaugh & Beatie Wolfe share a love of tangible artforms, in and amongst their futuristic explorations
  • In light of the threat to our 225yr old postal service, at a time that could jeopardize the democracy of the country, Mothersbaugh and Wolfe join forces for this collective postcard art demonstration
  • The aim of this campaign is to encourage as many people as possible to support USPS (at this critical time), our right to vote, and democracy as a whole via the power of art. The demonstration asks you to buy USPS stamps, design your postcard and then mail it to 8760 Sunset Blvd
  • The postcards will become part of a collective art piece - presented in both a physical gallery and virtual space - art directed by Mothersbaugh and Wolfe
"The post office is one of this country’s oldest institutions. Since 1775 we have relied on and trusted the USPO to connect us, to hold safe our documents, personal thoughts or objects of vital importance until they reach their intended destination. The threat now facing the USPO seems to shake our foundation and challenge rights that have, up until now, have been inherent. The fact that this has happened in this country not only needs to be documented but it needs to be questioned and commented on. What better way than to use the very system of the USPO as proof of concept that if we protest through art and connection, we not only capture this moment, we create a movement and we preserve it for posterity." - Mark Mothersbaugh
“Lockdown has reminded me of the joy and importance of physical correspondence so showing our support for this vital institution (USPS) at this crisis point is paramount. And what better way to do it than via the power of art.” - Beatie Wolfe
