USPS Art Project

The USPS Art Project was started by artist Christina Massey as a call to action for her fellow artists to support the United States Postal Service amidst the COVID-19 crisis. The concept is simple, artists each begin artworks for their collaboration partners to finish, sending them to each other by mail. It is designed to help artists feel connected while practicing social distancing, and in doing so, supporting the financially struggling USPS at the same time. Free and open for everyone to participate and interpret for their own creative process, the collaborations range from works on paper, to miniature quilts to even tiny ceramic pots.
Hundreds of artists have joined in the project, ranging from sculpture to painting, drawing, mixed media, fiber art and more. Sunset is happy to participate as the third exhibition location after Pelham Art Center and the Ely Center of Contemporary Art.
In order to maintain Dallas County health and safety guidelines gallery hours are by appointment and available through our Booking Form. All works in this installation are included here for virtual viewing.
Many of the works on view are available for sale. Check out our online store for pricing and orders.
