Ever considered mail to be art? Ray Johnson did

Ray Johnson was known as a “correspondence collage artist” because much of his work appeared on post cards and/or had stamps on it. He also founded the international movement known as “mail art.” Although Johnson died in 1995, his work is being revisited in a new gallery exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum called Hide/Seek. His pieces are messy, jumbled and a bit confusing, but are nonetheless adventurous and amazing. We love the idea of confusing the Post Office!

See some of Ray Johnson's work from the Hide/Seek exhibit below.
