Quinta da Cruz – Centro de Arte Contemporânea is located in Viseu, Portugal, and is a cultural space oriented to the exhibition of contemporary art and to the development of artistic practices. It’s a space destined to public enjoyment, culture and leisure, inserted in a green space of excellence and a remarkable biodiversity.
In 2019, Viseu assumed the motto of “National Destination of Gastronomy” and that is why, for this challenge, the theme “Food, Wine & Culture” was selected.
We launch an invitation to artists and all interested in MailArt to send their works, through the Postal Service, and join the 2nd edition of this event. Only works received through traditional mail will be displayed. We look forward for your drawings, collages, stamps and visual poetry, among others, at Quinta da Cruz!
