A Message from Brooks

I do find myself a bit perplexed by this card from Carroll Brooks. I decided not to show the entire card back or front because it was a simple notice for a blues fest at an art gallery--and not obviously related to the sender. Instead, I focus our attention on the brief note of encouragement. Minimalist mailart? Regardless, a little praise I am thankful for.

On the front of the card, Brooks includes an address sticker identifying himself as a student of the "Dumpster School of Art" of Peoria, Illinois. The label also includes a zip code--but no street address or post office box number, so I've no idea if mail to this address will work!


C. Brooks, "Keep up the..." (30 Dec 2004)

Wish I knew how to get in touch with Carroll. She sent a piece of mail art to my home using the label you describe - no address, just Peoria and a zip.
