USSA Postal Service: Chicago Casting Call


Event Summary

Kleine Welt exhibiting artist Zachary Cahill conducted a casting call for the USSA Postal Service, an unfolding project that incorporated found narrative and participant-generated content to help create a story of postal relatedness: a novel for the post-post-internet age. Visitors were invited to participate in a conversation with the artist to share their postal stories and the significance of letter writing, have their portraits taken, fill out a brief (and anonymous) questionnaire, and have cookies and milk (and hot cocoa).
