Scope and Contents Note

A large portion of the Bennett Papers consists of mail or correspondence art, a unique blend of painting, drawing, stickers, rubber stamp work, found objects, poetry, clippings, collage, etc., which are then sent through the postal system. Like all mail artists, Bennett is also a recipient of mail art, and his Papers include hundreds of examples of the work of many of the leading correspondence artists working today. The Bennett Papers also include his own manuscripts and poetry journals, as well as a large collection of small press publications, including Lost and Found Times, and a complete collection of printed items from Luna Bisonte Prods. Bennett carries on an extensive correspondence with artists, poets, and small press editors and his Papers contain a good portion of this correspondence as well.
