Pony Express Love Letters
Tuesday, January 31 – Sunday, February 12

Spread the Love! Visit during Museum hours and create a handwritten letter, compose a sonnet on our vintage typewriter, or fill in a Valentine’s Mad Lib for a loved one.  Members of the San Antonio Calligraphers' Guild will also be on hand to hand address your written masterpieces.

Modern day “Pony Express” riders (bicycle volunteers from SATX Social Ride) hand-deliver the letters on Tuesday, Feb 14 to all recipients in the downtown area. Letters outside the delivery area will be mailed on us with our special Pony Express stamp.

 

New this year: San Antonio Calligrapher's Guild will have their Winter Exhibit on display. All works are created on an envelope and have a Pony Express or western theme!

Free Admission to letter writing stations. Letter materials and delivery/postage are Free.

 

A heart-felt "Thank You" to everyone that helped make the 2016 Pony Express Love Letters project a fantastic success.

Especially:

-          SATX Social Ride
-          San Antonio Calligraphers’ Guild 
-          Make San Antonio
