Post Secret

In November 2004, Frank Warren began his community art project by handing out postcards to strangers and leaving them in public places in the Washington, D.C. area. Each self-addressed card invited people to anonymously share a secret. The two requirements were: The secret had to be true and it had to be something that had never been told to another person. Today, Warren has been mailed more than 100,000 highly personal and artfully decorated postcards illustrating the soulful secrets we never voice. This international phenomenon has spawned three successful books (and a fourth on the way), including The New York Times bestseller: PostSecret: Extraordinary Confessions from Ordinary Lives and an award winning website that receives more than four million visitors every month. The PostSecret exhibition tour was organized by International Arts & Artists, Washington, DC, in cooperation with Frank Warren.What are your thoughts on Post Secret and how has it affected you?
