Postcard Creative Art Project in WV

From Press Release

Glenville, West Virginia — The West Virginia State Folk Festival is seeking participation in a new creative arts event called the West Virginia Postcard Project.  Participants will receive a custom 4-by-6-inch postpaid postcard on which to create a greeting that expresses the images and ideals of Wild, Wonderful West Virginia.

Drawing, painting, photography, collage, stories, poetry, songs—any sort of artwork or writing is welcome. West Virginia residents and visitors of all ages are invited to participate.

During the 2013 West Virginia State Folk Festival, held June 20-23 in Glenville, the postcards will be arranged in a fabulous public display of West Virginia’s thriving creative culture.

Later, the postcards will become traveling exhibits that will make their way around the state, appearing at art galleries, libraries, exhibit halls, college campuses, heritage centers, and government buildings.

Individuals can participate for a $5 donation. School, church, 4-H, senior citizen, and other groups can participate at a substantial discount. All proceeds from the project support West Virginia State Folk Festival activities, and your donation is tax deductible.

To participate, visit or contact Melissa Gish, Assistant Professor of English at Glenville State College.
