Put your creativity to work! "Postcards from MIT" is an art project in which all members of the MIT community--faculty, staff, students and alumni/ae--are invited to create and submit a piece of artwork on a postcard. The only requirements are that the postcard must be 4 inches by 6 inches and it must be an original piece of artwork. The artist should only sign the back of the card, not the front. And the artwork should NOT be framed. The artwork can be a photograph, oils, pencils, crayons, watercolors, digital art, fabric, acrylics, pen or other art material. Please do not make a color copy of the original art for your submission.

The submission deadline is Feb. 19.

The result will be a show and sale of all the postcards at the Stata Center Student Street on Feb. 23 from 5 to 8 p.m. All postcards can be purchased at the event.

All works will be for sale to benefit Rosie's Place. The price of the postcards is $10 for students and $15 for all other members of the MIT community.

The sale is sponsored by the Campus Activities Complex.
