Mail Art at Oberlin
The Oberlin College Mail Art Collection, housed in the Clarence Ward Art Library, consists of two archives:
- Reid Wood's State of Being Archive
- Harley Francis' Terra-Candella Achive (About)
Together these archives contain well over 25,000 works created from mid-1970's to the present, by over 1,800 mail artists from 60 countries. Of that number approximately 300 artists are available for viewing by appointment.
The Mail Art Imagebase contains a handful of images for most of the artists.
