Jade Dellinger, director of Ft. Myers’ superb Bob Rauschenberg Gallery, is hosting a completely unique installation making its world premiere. Dellinger, who hails from Tampa, boasts quite the resume; he’s an art historian with an overwhelming amount of knowledge, a longtime independent curator who has worked extensively in New York City and a published author. As the co-writer and catalyst behind 2008’s “Are We Not Men? We Are Devo!”—a detailed expose of one of the most ingenious and innovative bands of all time—Dellinger’s expertise crosses many boundaries. His fascination with Devo doesn’t stop at the band’s quirky music.

With Postcards for Democracy, Mark Mothersbaugh and Beatie Wolfe Deliver Priority Mail Art

Maybe you can't credit Beatie Wolfe and Mark Mothersbaugh with saving the U.S. Postal Service, but it's no stretch to say these two artist/musicians got more people actively supporting it than anyone else in 2020. Thousands showed their love for the 225-year-old civic institution after the pair launched Postcards for Democracy, a demonstration/collective art project that expressed support for the post office by using the post office. Participation was as simple as 1-2-3: 1) Buy stamps; 2) make art on a postcard; 3) mail the card to Mothersbaugh and Wolfe. That activity generated funds for the postal service and reaffirmed its value.

Mark Mothersbaugh + Beatie Wolfe Collect Postcards for Democracy To Save USPS

The USPS, an independent agency of the federal government, has been cash-strapped for years and then it was hit by the COVID-19 pandemic which saw fewer people buying postage and products that keep it funded. Enter the Trump-elected Postmaster General, Louis DeJoy, who immediately began making cuts that have led to major slowdowns in mail delivery and substantial financial and legal ramifications. With a shared love of “tangible artforms,” multi-hyphenates Mark Mothersbaugh and Beatie Wolfe came together and organized a postcard art demonstration called Postcards for Democracy. The duo encouraged, and still welcomes, anyone and everyone to join the collective art piece while also helping to support the USPS by buying stamps. The project began last year but they’re continuing to accept postcards until August 8th, 2021.
