Love Letter Project
Mary A. Colborn, a writer and educator, was inspired by Global Love Letters to create a universal love letter. With a team of high schoolers, she blanketed the city of Grand Rapids, Michigan, with love letters for a giant art show called ArtPrize. Teens asked that the love letters on display in giant form in Grand Rapids be resized in postcard form for them to share in schools. Mary shares her beautiful universal ‘love letter’ for teens and children via our project also.
