Register to receive a pack of 10 artist made postcards of your choice, 1 blank card, 10 stamps, and the district addresses of your Federal Senators and Representatives.



Join ArtTable for an afternoon of writing to our government officials.  Voice your concerns on artist made postcards!  All proceeds go to support National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), and Planned Parenthood!

"Give Voice" is a grassroots, multi-state, arts advocacy project initiated by ArtTable member Eileen Jeng. This project has the potential to change the current political landscape. Artists have created postcards that would be sent to our Federal Senators and Representatives at their district addresses. By sending these postcards we could help protect the arts, culture, environment, women's rights, our civil liberties, and other important issues. A revelatory exhibition of artist postcards and works will be on view at LMAKbooks+design from July 20 through 22.

To see the selection of artist postcards, go to neumeraki.com/store. Packs include your choice of 10 artist postcards, 1 blank card, stamps, and the district addresses of your Federal Senators and Representatives.
