The Oberlin College Mail Art Collection, housed in the Clarence Ward Art Library, consists of two archives:

  • Reid Wood's State of Being Archive
  • Harley Francis' Terra-Candella Achive

Together these archives contain over 25,000 works from the mid-1970's to 2014, produced by more than 1,800 mail artists from 60 countries.  Of that number approximately 300 artists are available for viewing by appointment.

The Mail Art Imagebase contains a sample of the collection.  Records can be saved to the Favorites Folder and exported as a .cvs or PowerPoint file.  

Contact us with questions or to report a problem with the Mail Art Imagebase.
