Mail Art Exhibition and Reception Commemorating Lake Worth Centennial

Lake Worth, Florida -- The Lake Worth Museum, located at 414 Lucerne Avenue, will 
exhibit the collection of Mail Art received over the last two years in tribute to the City’s 
Centennial. The exhibit opens on Wednesday, April 30th with a reception from 6-8pm. 

More than 100 artistically embellished envelopes were delivered by the US Postal Service 
to Lake Worth City Hall from well wishers around the world as far away as China and New 
Zealand. Each envelope is a unique expression using drawings, calligraphy, collage or 
photography. Some are not even envelopes. One in particular uses a dried sea grape leaf 
as a canvas for their Centennial tribute.  
The collection will remain a permanent part of the Museum’s historical collection of art and 
artifacts from the first 100 years of the City’s history. The Lake Worth Historical Museum in 
the City Hall Annex Building is located on the second floor. The Museum is open on 
Wednesdays and Fridays from 1-4pm and tours are available by appointment. For more 
information about the Lake Worth Museum, please call (561) 533-7354.
