Protect and preserve: UNCG professor’s postcard project is now online (News & Record)
A postcard project created by a professor at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro has gone online. “Since 2004, Sheryl Oring has typed out postcards at 71 performances at college campuses, on city streets and in public spaces across the nation. Oring (or sometimes an assistant) would invite people to sit down and write out a postcard to the current or future president — George W. Bush, Barack Obama and Donald Trump — or a political candidate. As people talked, Oring used a vintage manual typewriter to put their words — their hopes, their fears, their praise, their scorn — onto a blank postcard.” The project has almost 3300 postcards.
