A very special correspondence

Save the … month!

Do you know where you will be every day next month?

WAG’s favorite performance artist does.

Marcy B. Freedman has let us know about her newest work, “The Letter Project,” which be based at The Black Cow in her hometown of Croton-on-Hudson.

The artist will be on hand from 1 to 3 p.m. each and every afternoon in February to share her enthusiasm for what she calls “low-tech forms of communication.”

Here’s how her latest interactive performance will work:

Participants will be provided with free pens, paper, envelopes and stamps, as long as they are willing to do two things – write a letter and chat with the artist.

Freedman is presenting this one-on-one, face-to-face work as part of her ongoing series of projects she says are “designed to counteract our growing reliance upon virtual forms of communication, such as email, texting, blogging and social networking.”

Her goal, she adds, “is to help people rediscover the joys of interacting with others in real time and real space.”

Sounds like a great way to spend an afternoon, right?
