Pony Express Love Letters 2016
February 2 - February 11, 2016
Visitors, stop by the Museum February 2-11 during regular hours to craft a personal love letter on a vintage typewriter or with calligraphy pens. Look to books of poetry designed to foster romantic expression for inspiration or fill in a Valentine’s Mad Lib for a light-hearted touch. All the collected letters will be hand-delivered for free to loved ones — by bicycle messenger, like a modern day Pony Express, if they are in the downtown area* (or by postal service outside of Central San Antonio).
There will be two hand-lettering classes; improv poetry group, Typewriter Rodeo, writing personalized poetry on the spot; a gallery talk on message delivery in the West; and the San Antonio Calligraphy Guild will address envelopes. Check the Briscoe Museum Event Calendar for times and details!
