About Mail Art @ Oberlin
The Oberlin College Mail Art Collection is housed in the Clarence Ward Art Library. It consists of two large archives:
Reid Wood's State of Being Archive
Harley Francis' Terra-Candella Achive
Together these archives contain over 25,000 works from the mid-1970's to 2004, produced by more than 1,800 mail artists from around the world.
We have identified 275 significant Mail Artists and uploaded some examples of their work.
