Wisconsin Art Exhibition Postcards

Are postcards a thing of the past? Or are we still embracing this tangible and historical artifact?

These two questions prompted me to go through hundreds of postcards that I have collected for 15+ years and I was curious as to how many postcards I have from Wisconsin art galleries, arts centers, and art museums. All postcards have been sorted by state, but will be sharing only Wisconsin.

I originally began a post on Instagram, but due to the orientation of these postcards it made more sense to share them here.

This post marks the beginning of archiving these postcards.
