The Smithsonian's "Mail Call" Exhibition

Feb
7

Saturday, February 07, 2015

Throughout our nation?s history, military personnel have treasured the letters and care packages received from loved ones back home. Just how has this mail reached its destination through the years? What role has it played in the lives of the men and women who serve and their families? Mail Call, a new exhibition organized with the Smithsonian?s National Postal Museum, tells the fascinating story of military mail and communication?from the American Revolution to current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

On the battlefront and at home, mail has long sustained the vital connections between military service members and their family and friends. With compelling documents, photographs, illustrations, and audio stations, Mail Call celebrates the importance of this correspondence.

From the earliest handwritten letters that took months to deliver, to today?s instant communication via email or the Internet, the exhibition presents the changing look and format of mail pieces through the decades. It also examines the complex operations systems set in place to ensure safe delivery. Most significantly, it explores the incalculable role mail plays in maintaining the morale of our troops.

The Smithsonian's "Mail Call" Exhibition

Feb

Friday, February 13, 2015

Throughout our nation?s history, military personnel have treasured the letters and care packages received from loved ones back home. Just how has this mail reached its destination through the years? What role has it played in the lives of the men and women who serve and their families? Mail Call, a new exhibition organized with the Smithsonian?s National Postal Museum, tells the fascinating story of military mail and communication?from the American Revolution to current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

On the battlefront and at home, mail has long sustained the vital connections between military service members and their family and friends. With compelling documents, photographs, illustrations, and audio stations, Mail Call celebrates the importance of this correspondence.

From the earliest handwritten letters that took months to deliver, to today?s instant communication via email or the Internet, the exhibition presents the changing look and format of mail pieces through the decades. It also examines the complex operations systems set in place to ensure safe delivery. Most significantly, it explores the incalculable role mail plays in maintaining the morale of our troops.

The Art of Arkansas: Photography by Mike Anderson

Feb
20

Friday, February 20, 2015

Mike Anderson has been a full-time photographer since the summer of 2007. Having had no formal education in the art of photography, he states, "the art comes naturally to me!" With today?s digital photography format, Anderson finds that he can create work that will convey his vision of color and light more naturally and precisely than with film photography and a darkroom.

"I love capturing an image, then seeing that image become a finished piece of art through editing. As I edit my work it is my goal to bring out the colors and light that I saw when I first captured the image. Hopefully, the finished photo will present the subject matter in a distinctive and thoughtful manner."
