The Muskegon Museum of Art’s rescheduled Postcard Salonexhibition is now open to visitors. The MMA’s Postcard Salon is a non-competitive event that features small-scale works by hundreds of Michigan artists. The works of art will be available to view until the end of October, ending with the opportunity for the public to buy the artworks for $30 each on October 30 and October 31.
Earlier this year, the museum had to close because of COVID immediately before the Postcard Salon was due to open and after all the artwork arrived. The museum staff safely stored the artwork until the time when the show could be rescheduled. The 2020 Postcard Salon features about 1,700 works of art by nearly 600 artists;both numbers are the highest seen in the 14 years the event has taken place.
