‘Push the Envelope’ @ Zeppelin Café

Through June 2012

Zeppelin Café
1036 E. Burnett Ave. • 589-0343

Sometimes you just have to push the envelope, and that’s what the Center For Neighborhoods’ PAINT program has done. Their second public project, by artists Russel and Shelley Vaughn Hulsey, is in Schnitzelburg. The oversized envelope sculpture, mounted on the side of Zeppelin Café, functions as a mailbox of sorts. The public slot is for correspondence from residents to be read by the Schnitzelburg Area Community Council. The letters in the private slot hold “Our Heart’s Desire” and will be shredded at the end of the project. “We really want to emphasize how important it is for artists to be leaving their studios and working in community-public settings,” says the center’s creative director Hallie Jones. “This project really engaged the neighborhood and serves as a mode for communication.” —Jo Anne Triplett
