VORTICE ARGENTINA calls on Argentine and foreign artists and mail artists to participate in the project
that will be submitted to Correo Argentino in order to determine the MAIL ARTIST'S DAY, at a national level.
The date to be established is December 5, when The Last International Mail Art Exhibition* took place.
This was the first mail art show organized in Argentina by artist Edgardo A.Vigo. Thus, his distinguished
careeras a mail artist is commemorated by all those who are communicated at a distance through art and by mail.
The project to be submitted will consist of three proposals:
1- To determine the Mail Artist's commemorative date at a national level.
2- To issue a commemorative stamp and postmark of the issuing date, in charge of Correo Argentino.
3- To propose an international exhibition of stamps created by artists, to be staged in the building of the Central
Post Office of Correo Argentino.
The support coupons are essential to complete the project to be submitted to Correo Argentino. This is the reason
why the data have to be completed, and only the originals will be accepted; otherwise, documentation will be null
